The idea for Kolsvart, set up five years ago, came about in a café business in Malmö. Founders Axel Roos and Nils
Tenje wanted to offer liquorice in their café but could not find anything exciting on the market. “What we saw was expensive products with dull packaging, and we believed that we could do it better ourselves,” explains Tenje. “One day Roos surprised me with a batch of his own superb liquorice; it was so good and we instantly set up the new business!” And so the Kolsvart brand was born from a series of coincidences and turned into a reality of producing great liquorice for true connoisseurs.
