About Hattesens Konfektfabrik

Hattesens Konfektfabrik pays homage to the idea of quality, proximity and consideration. In 2016, that approach became Hattesen’s confectionery factory: Liquorice confectionery handmade on the Danish island Ærø. Ærø is located in the Baltic Sea in Southern Denmark. Here, local traditions are cherished and every liquorice is created diligently. Hattesens pays attention to the feeling, aroma and consistency of the liquorice mass with the goal of making the best confectionery. The liquorice brand’s motto is less sugar, more taste. Hattesens lives up to this pledge by using only the highest quality ingredients with all natural contents.


Brand Ethos

Hattesens Konfektfabrik takes pride in being local and handmade on the small Danish island of Ærø in the South Funen archipelago. The liquorice brand’s confectionery is made according to old traditions and is local at heart. Perfecting the confectionery since 1998, Hattesens has been providing natural and vegan-friendly liquorice in their round recycled boxes since 2016.

Brand sustainability

Hattesens' liquorice confectionery is handmade using natural and non-toxic ingredients. Dried fruits and berries as well as natural oils and aromas are the pure contents that are found in Hattesens’ confectionery. Producing exclusively from natural ingredients makes each Hattesens batch unique and can therefore vary in taste and colour. However, liquorice lovers are guaranteed vegan-friendly and responsible confectionery in return.


Hattesens’ liquorice is packaged in confectionery boxes that have been developed with the environment in mind. The packaging consists of 96% recycled material that allows for storing the liquorice safely. Make sure to store your Hattesens in a dark and temperate location.



Besides meticulously choosing the right ingredients and packaging, Hattesens Konfektfabrik also partakes in promoting local areas. The company is supported by EU funds for rural development. Local Action Groups (LAGs) backed by the EU strengthen local communities by implementing tools that foster, enable and scale up innovation. Being handmade on the small Danish island Ærø, Hattesens Konfektfabrik takes pride in their heritage.

The Comarché Notes

Hattesens Konfektfabrik is made exclusively from natural ingredients. Whether you love liquorice or confectionery, Hattesens gives you the perfect combination of both. Hattesens first opened their doors in 2016, but the Ærø local (a small Danish island located in the Baltic Sea) has been perfecting their confectionery recipe since 1998!

Sustainable highlights on brand level

Product Lifecycle


The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.


        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.


          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.


            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.


              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
