Lehdistötiedoite vierailevalta näytteilleasettajalta: Forget everything you know about traditional liquorice allsorts!

On the small Danish island of Ærø, this traditional confectionery has been reinvented by the creative entrepreneur Claus Hattesen, and his delicious squares are quickly conquering the high-end candy market. If you’re one for outstanding taste and quality, the liquorice allsorts from Hattesens Konfektfabrik will surely win your heart (and your tastebuds).

The liquorice allsorts from Konfektfabrikken are handmade using traditional methods. You can tell the difference from the first bite: the natural flavours and aromas, and the lovely smooth texture and consistency of the liquorice. The company’s motto is “less sugar, more taste”, hence only ingredients of the highest quality are used in the production - dried fruit and berries, as well as natural oils and aromas.

The confectionery is available in 12 variations, combined into boxes each with 3 sorts:
Red – blueberry, gooseberry, strawberry
Orange – lemon, orange, passionfruit
Brown – liquorice, chocolate, mocha

Hattesens Konfektfabrik is a project part-funded by the EU’s program for the development of rural areas (LAG).

Lakritsi- &Salmiakkifestivaalit
Tukholmassa ja Helsingissä vuosittain järjestettävien Lakritsi- & Salmiakkifestivaalien tavoitteena on levittää lakritsin ilosanomaa, luoda yhteisöllisyyttä ja jakaa tietoa. Tukholmassa tapahtuma on järjestetty vuodesta 2009 alkaen. Viime vuonna Helsingissä tapahtuma keräsi 9 000 kävijää kahden päivän aikana. Tämä oli reilu lisäys edellisvuoden kävijämäärään, joka oli reilut 6 300.

27.–28. lokakuuta on Suomen viidensien Lakritsi- & Salmiakkifestivaalin vuoro Helsingin Wanhassa Satamassa. Festivaalin pääsponsorina toimii tänäkin vuonna Fazer.

Tapahtuman organisoi Tuija Räsänen, Oy Lakrits Finland Ab.
