The charming Kurzeme town of Saldus offers visitors the opportunity to fulfill their childhood dreams – visiting an ice cream and confectionary production facility.
Those visiting the town will be able to tour the facilities of the various companies manufacturing sweets in the region, where persons will not only have the opportunity to see how these sweets are made, but also taste their wonderful products.
The local sweets manufacturer "Saldus pārtikas kombināts", which produces the legendary Latvian milk-caramel candy "Gotiņa", offers visitors a tour of the production process, as well as the opportunity to try the many tasty candies and other sweets produced on the spot. The company only uses fresh milk from local farms to produce its products, as well as other natural ingredients.
Meanwhile, ice cream lovers can visit the village of Druva nearby for a visit to the "Druva Food" ice cream company. The bountiful fields surrounding are just perfect for local dairy cows to graze, which in turn produce the fresh milk used to make the company’s delicious ice cream.
Those visiting the ice cream production facility will have the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the production process, as well as "meet" their famous dairy cows. It is possible to get better acquainted with the company and its products at its official web-site - www.druvassaldejumi.lv/en.
It is also interesting to point out that the name Saldus is actually very close to the Latvian word for sweet – saldi.
