Project in operation: since: 2012, started selling in May 2017
Location covered: whole Slovak market
They want to bring back the old traditional way of how the generation of our grandparents used to make homemade syrup. They want to combine tradition – as also the name of the brand “wolf syrup” is based on old name of the area of their upbringing Wolf mountains; with their unique choice of combinations of fruit which creates final flavors. Everything is handmade and fruit is of course bio.
They started to develop the project in 2012, it was just 2 of them and they built everything from zero. Throughout the years they were learning how to properly cook the syrups, they needed to get all the licences needed for proper running of such business and they only used own financial resources.
They started selling last year in May. This year in the period January to April they already managed to sell more then they did in last year in total. They are growing in Slovak market, they already appeared in many newspapers. Now they are expanding to Czech Republic.
They faced difficulties mainly in the process of getting licences due to bureaucracy and lots of conditions they needed to fulfill in order to get approval from hygienic bureau.
