The history of EPSA dates back to 1924, when there was a surplus of lemons in the geographical area of Pilion. Observing a sales increase of traditional lemonade by peddlers, the owners of EPSA set the goal to create a factory that produces Soft Drinks. A German Chemical Engineer was invited to assist with the production of lemonade. It was then that the secret recipe was born and is preserved until today.
During the nine decades that passed since then, a lot of progress has been made. In 1937, EPSA was awarded the “Golden Award for Quality” at Thessaloniki International Fair. In 1940, the noted glass bottle of EPSA, that was meant to become the landmark of the brand, is designed.
The last years, next to the classic Orangeade, Lemonade, Lemon Soda and Soda Water, many new products have been added: Iced Drinks with Tea in several flavours, Tonic, Sour Cherry Drink, Organic Lemonade and Orangeade and Lemonade, Orangeade and Cola light (with sweetener from the stevia plant). Also, “light drops”, a liquid sweetener from the stevia plant, was the new innovation. Last, but not least, Pink Lemonade was the latest addition to our product list.
Mkm GmbH - Manufaktur fur Geniesser is one of the leading German manufacturers of prime chocolates and confectionaries. Established in 2004 by Markus and Michael Kuhlwein in the Franconian town of Burghaslach, the business was built upon the strong foundation of family tradition of producing gingerbread and confectionary that goes as far back as 1613. Started as a two man company, the brand acquired an enviable position in the premium sector of high quality chocolate in no time at all.
Ever since it was founded the young company has been banking on premium quality, creativity, innovation, diversity and dynamics. These guidelines have proved to be a formula of success for the company from the time of establishment until today. The huge success of mkm is largely due to continually increasing the competence in the creation of unique innovations with which unmatchable chocolate refinements and new interpretations are created. In the company's in house product development department, mkm's creativity team develops new creations, thus successfully expanding the range of products. Therefore continuous investments in state of art technology are made. Every single one of mkm's creations is a tiny artificial composition in itself.
The company's quality philosophy and innovative approach has been acknowledged by numerous awards and recognitions. Every year since its inception in 2004, mkm chocolates have received gold and silver medals from the German Agriculture Association. Three times in a row mkm chocolate creations were awarded the 'sweetie' innovation prize endowed by food retail trade's 'RUNDSCHAU' magazine.
