Chocolate and sweets: a national emblem...
To understand the love Latvians have for chocolate, you need to know the history of Laima, a confectionery founded in Riga in 1870 by Theodor Riegert. This first chocolate maker experienced a rapid increase in his reputation across the Russian empire at the end of the 19th century. Several competitors then entered the market: the Goegginger factory in 1881, and the Kuze house in 1910, followed by the Staburadze house in 1921. Several mergers followed in light of political and economic events, forming a single company called Laima. You should know that in Latvian mythology, Laima is the name of the goddess of fate, and the company is located in the building with the clock of the same name, a national and tourist symbol of Latvia.
...acquired by the Norwegian company Orkla in 2014.
The company's reputation earned it a few national awards, such as the Best Candy Prize in 2010, with its Riga Black Balsam dark chocolate candies. Serenade candies have seen such success that it is estimated that Latvians eat them at least once or twice a month ! Russia is a promising market for Latvian chocolatiers. In fact, Russia alone imports more than 15 tons of Latvian chocolate for revenues of €3 million. Other regions also import significant amounts of Latvian products, including the countries of continental Europe, the United Kingdom, as well as the United States. The products are manufactured from Forastero cacao beans imported from Ghana. Tourists can also visit the Laima Chocolate Museum, which has been open since October 2013, at 22 Miera Street in Riga. Nonetheless, the story continues to evolve with the acquisition of this national symbol by the Norwegian company Orkla in August 2014.
