Would you like to know something about Katjes?
Where does the name “Katjes” actually come from?
Katjes is the Dutch word for "little cat". Our first product also was a little liquorice cat. Everyone liked it so much that the whole family was named after it: The Katjes Fassin GmbH + Co. KG.
How long have you been around already?
The Katjes-family was established in 1950 by Klaus Fassin under the name Katjes Fassin GmbH + Co. KG. But our story actually goes back even further – to 1910 – with a recipe for the manufacture of liquorice from Sicily! This is how the production of our little liquorice cats “Katjes” began. In the 70s, we commenced the production of the first fruit gums.
