We are proud to be supplier to the Royal Court, which we have been since 1991. The appointment was made the same year as our 100th anniversary.

We are very touched by this gesture, which rewards our family's passion for delivering only the best quality and living up to the proud craft. Traditions that the candy manufacturers have used for 6 generations. We still produce the original handcrafted candies as in 1891.

We are proudly bound by family values, because it is now the 4th generation of Søemod, which controls the candy factory and ensures that it is the right Sømods Candies, you can buy in Nørregade and online in our webshop.

 

SUPPLIER TO THE ROYAL DANISH COURT?

Before 2008 there were two predicates, namely "Royal Court Supplier" and "Supplier to the Royal Danish Court". The appointment of Supplier to the Royal Danish Court has been granted since 1904 to companies that delivered to the royal household.

The two sermons were merged in 2008, so now there is only a royal court supplier. Sømods Bolcher has been a royal court supplier since 1991.

 

BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

The royal court supplier is a predicate dating back to the 19th century, it is only awarded to companies and individuals who have had long-term and regular trade of a certain extent with the royal family and the royal household.

In addition, it is a prerequisite that the company must be well established, financially sound, well managed and reputable.

The predicate is not automatically awarded, but must be sought after. Her Majesty’s office will assess whether the application can be submitted to Her Majesty the Queen.

The appointment is done personally by Her Majesty the Queen, and takes place after the old tradition on the Monarch's birthday.

In the old days, there was only one way to make candies. The method consisted of boiling the crystal sugar up to almost 180° C, after which the finished product was produced on the production table.
