Respect for tradition
We are a family-run enterprise based in Porvoo, Finland, founded in 1994. The Makulaku story was first launched with the help of liquorice cooked in our very own kitchen – bagging it was a team effort involving the entire family.
These days our kitchens are slightly bigger. Producing 1.5 million kilos of liquorice every year takes a lot of space and a lot of people. In addition to the family, Makulaku has a staff of 40.
Fresh insights & bold innovation
In addition to traditional liquorice, our strength lies in innovative product development. The most recent example of this is our new product range comprising a choice of organic filled liquorice. It is the result of long-term and meticulous product development and will be launched in Finland in the summer of 2011.
We have also identified a growing market for liquorice outside Finland. International sales account for a significant share of our turnover, with products now sold in 15 different countries, both under our own brand and under our clients’ own brands.
New knowledge, news skills & new successes
At Makulaku, quality lies at the very heart of everything that we do. It is a matter of considerable pride for us to ensure that every time you eat a piece of Makulaku liquorice you have a first rate experience. Our products are made using only the finest, carefully tested and natural ingredients.
We approach our work with genuine passion and want to express that through our products. Our vision for the future is to make Makulaku the number one choice for liquorice lovers everywhere.
Makulaku products represent Finnish confectionery craft at its finest.
