Marzipan originally came from the Middle East, and back then, it had a rose water or orange blossom flavor. As early as 965, this specialty was one of the caliphs’ tables delights. Moreover, marzipan became known in Europe through the Arab invasion of Spain and Portugal. At that time, only kings and princes could eat this specialty.
When pharmacists started producing and selling the almond paste, as they had the spice monopoly, confectionery manufacturers soon began manufacturing marzipan. However, it remained a luxury item until the 19th century. Finally, when people started to produce sugar from sugar beet, which was cheaper than cane sugar, that finally made marzipan more widely available.

About the brand
The foundation stone for today’s Olo Marzipan O. Lohner AG was laid by the company’s founder Otto Lohner in Ostermundigen in 1933. The protected “olo” logo, well known in the trade, derived from the first letters of his first name and surname.
Today, the factory has around 60 employees, with an output of some 2,000 tones of products per year. One of their best-known products is the classic orange marzipan carrot, which you can find on almost every carrot cake.
The company continues to be a family business, now run by the third generation.
