Italy is the country of the senses. The tastes of food and drinks, the beautiful landscapes and Mediterranean sounds carry you away and make you realize this one thing: Italy is a country to fall in love with.
Italians know how to enjoy life. Traditional recipes give their products a characteristic Italian flavour. Their chocolate is an outstanding example of this.
My name is Marica Anker, and like many others I fell in love with this beautiful country and its flavours. It has become my passion to let as many people as possible experience the tastes of Italy. This is how MariCase came into being.
Love is most beautiful when you can share it. Fortunately, Italy is my great love and I can share it with everyone in the delicious taste of its chocolate.
Travelling and food are about the same: discovery. New places, tastes and experiences enrich your life in a way nothing else can.
Italy is a country of traditions. Recipes have been passed on and perfected by many generations. This is what makes their chocolate so delicious.
In Italy they know how to enjoy life. Why else is their food so wonderful? With the chocolate of MariCase I bring that feeling of joy to the Netherlands.
Chocolate makes you happy, Italian chocolate does so just a bit more- Marica Anker, founder of MariCase
