We love hearing how valued customer, Johan Bülow started out, and how he is now on a mission to make the world love liquorice with his premium brand Lakrids. We are delighted to have been part of his story from the very start, as he describes in this snippet from Confectionery Production Magazine:

British connection
When the company moved to its dedicated manufacturing facilities, a critical component was the equipment itself – which Johan recalls came courtesy of British firm BCH (below). The Lancashire business supplied him with an extruder machine, which to this day, stands as its sole piece of kit churning out a notable volume of liquorice.

“I can remember it just started with an email I sent them asking if they could help. So, I just got on a plane to Manchester to see them – I am sure they just looked at me and thought ‘what is this boy from Denmark trying to do,” but after some initial trial work, the company obliged with a line which is still fully operational.
