Momofuku Ando, the owner and founder of the worldwide famous company Nissin in Japan, is the person who invented instant noodles.
What inspired the invention of quick noodles?
The food scarcity in Japan following World War II.
In the midst of this scenario, Ando created the first ever instant Chicken (chikin) Ramen, in 1958. This became a smash hit, and then a decade later came cup noodles. The rest, as they say, is history.
