From their website:
Makulaku has been developing liquorice products already since 1994. The taste has always been the guiding light of our product development, which has resulted in a happy and colorful world of flavors, offering the consumers besides the traditional black liquorice, a fascinating new range of flavor combinations.
The major strengths of Makulaku is the knowledge and the product development of liquorice. In 1997 Makulaku launched the first black organic liquorice to the international markets. In the year of 2011 Makulaku was once again the first company to introduce a new product range comprising a choice of organic filled liquorice. Our goal is to continuously develop new and to improve old.
