How we met ?
The idea of importing products from France doesn’t make any sense without “Le savon de Marseille” – an absolute classic. Born in the beautiful city of Marseille, this authentic product known throughout the world is the product I have used my whole life.
The area where I grew up is called Le Cours Julien, in the heart of Marseille. This is where one of the oldest soap factories is: La Licorne. Known for their beautiful work and respect of the tradition, La Licorne is still making soap just like before. Same knowledge, same machine, same product, and that’s why it works.
As we say in France, “We don’t change a winning team!” This product is an original, an original piece of Marseille. After visiting their museum at the old port of Marseille and the factory in the Cours Julien, it was obvious that La Licorne was the company we had to work with. People passionate about what they’re doing and how they’re doing it.
Cafoutche is proud to import this beautiful product here to New Zealand from the oldest city in France – my city – Marseille.
I recommend more than anything to visit Marseille, of course, and at the same time to take a look at the factory and the museum of La Licorne. It’s an amazing cultural experience.
