EPICA - The Origin

  • 1998

    The sister company of Norac Foods group, Sud’n’sol, has continued to innovate with a wide and colourful range of healthy antipasti for the past 20 years using their unique ‘savoir faire’ – their passion for vegetables and obsession for quality and delicious taste.

  • 2016

    Dips and antipasti are huge in the UK: humous, semi-dried tomatoes and olives are part of the way of life. The Managing Director of NFUK saw a great opportunity for the UK market, looking at the country’s lifestyle trends and deciding to introduce a new selection to the dips category with our range of tapenades. Unbelievably delicious yet healthy, indulgent yet so versatile, they are an ideal way to bring meals to the UK that are bursting with Mediterranean taste!

  • 2017

    This range of products deserved a great brand name relating to their delicious taste and the specialness of the shared moments they invite. This brought us, in 2017, to brand and launch our chilled vegetable-based products: EPICA, for an innovative offering to UK consumers of antipasti and aperitif-type products. Our tapenade range, new in the portfolio of Epica, was created with 5 different flavours and even before its launch our Red Pepper Tapenade won the Great Taste Award 2017.

  • 2018

    Our brand creation is finalised and our packaging for the new range completed. Epica is ready to be launched and within months of being presented has achieved its first listing! UK consumers, get ready for a sensational surprise for your taste buds!
