Stockholm-based Delicato was founded in 1948 by confectioner Einar Belvén and established itself as an innovative producer of high-quality chocolates, cakes and pastries. With a range of around 200 products, Delicato is the market leader in baked goods in the Nordics and a purveyor to the Swedish Royal Court. Delicato is also an ambassador of the modern ‘fika’ culture, which is somewhat of a social institution in Sweden and means ‘to have coffee’, most often along with pastries or open sandwiches. “Fika is a phenomenon not yet fully recognised globally,” says CEO Jörgen Bergqvist, “but it raises a lot of curiosity and is one of the unique characteristics of Swedish culture. We are proud to be part of that tradition.”
