Beatrice comes from Karst. She was brought to the village of Tomaj by Vojka and Jurij. It was is how we named our home after we had moved to the Karst region of Slovenia in 2006. The name itself has a whole range of noble meanings: Beatrice is the bearer of bliss, born from well-being, focused on that perfect blend of vita activa (active life) and vita contemplativa (contemplative life). After years of creating these little spells of culinary magic, we have decided to give our mmmarmalades a name that has become so well-known among our friends: Beatrice.
To be honest, we are not professional chefs. Vojka is a journalist, working (mainly) as a communication strategist and creative director. Jurij is a medical doctor, working (mainly) as a consultant in the health care sector and pharmaceutical industry. At first, we created marmalades for ourselves and our friends. But due to the abundance of high-quality fruit available in the local area, the amount of mmmarmalade has grown increasingly. After persistent lobbying of our friends, we decided to make mmmarmalades Beatrice for anyone who can appreciate the value of high quality, authenticity and uniqueness.
Our mmmarmealades Beatrice are produced in limited quantities with unlimited love.
