The GICOPA candy factory/bakery is a family owned company in the south east region of Belgium (Liège). Since several generations Gicopa
continues to use its unique know-how to produce quality products with a respect for traditional values.
GICOPA was founded in 1895 by Mr Gillard who named it after « Monsieur GIllard COnfiserie et PAin
d'épices » / « Mr Gillard candy factory and ginger/spiced bread (bakery) ».
The specialty of Gicopa is hard boiled candy that continues to be produced according to Monsieur Gillard's original recipes. We use best quality
ingredients and aromas to deliver our authentic flavours. Best sellers are the Violette (purple flower shaped candy), the very, very, very sour cherry and the flower mix ( mix of flower shaped candies of different flavours : violet, mandarin, cherry, lemon,
kiwi). Our small structure allows us to develop a personalized candy with the flavour and colouring of your choice, just contact us.
During the end of the year season our factory also produces two other exeptional specialities from Liege : the « Massepain cuit » (heart
shaped marzipan from a 120 years old traditional recipe that is baked with a golden crust in the oven). The « spéculation pur beurre »,
cousin of the famous belgian speculoos with roasted hazelnut and a delicate secret mix of spices that has the perfect combination of sweetness and texture.
