Our affiliate, Katjes International GmbH & Co. KG, takes a share in the French confectionery manufacturer Lutti. Très bien.
Only the best from the fruit – granini fruit candy.
The liquid center is a true fruity pleasure. And Katjes catches it for all the hard candy fans out there. Another iconic brand - yummy!
No more artificial food coloring!
Naturalness: the order of the day. From then on, we only used fruit pulp, fruit juice and plant-based or fruit-based color extracts for all our fruit gummies and licorice.
In the beginning there was only a tiny cat.
The story of Katjes began in Sicily. Xaver Fassin, whose ancestors also came from the island, brought a licorice recipe back home with him. His son Klaus used the recipe to produce licorice in the form of a tiny cat. He called it Katjes – the Dutch word for kitten. When asked why he made a tiny cat, he said it was a lucky charm. And he was right!
