Dr. Carl Soldan, the great-grandfather of our managing partner, Perry Soldan, laid the foundation stone for our family enterprise and our strong brands 120 years ago.

The German pharmacist and medical officer had his finger on the pulse right from the start, consistently developing surprisingly good products. His impressive ability for innovation naturally found an outlet in confectionery, with Em-eukal® cough drops leading the way.

For generations this brand has been mixing love with skill and adding enthusiasm for natural flavour and premium quality - a unique blend which still has the ability to this day to satisfy millions of people.
