About Aprati Foods®

Why Aprati™?

Did you know "Aprati" was derived from the ancient Sanskrit term meaning "Irresistible"? We believe that Aprati™ Candy delivers irresistibly delicious flavors and you will feel the same after one taste. Our fruit-flavored Frutati™ and café-inspired Mocati™ blends are not only unique and delicious but are also inspired and sourced from our supplier in Cambodia who shares our passion, values, and vision.

Why Cambodia?

This East-meets-West partnership between the Aprati™ brand and our Cambodian supplier emerged based on four essential criteria:

  1. Cleaner Ingredients – Aprati Candy is Non-GMO Project certified. We know that you care about what goes into your food and how it is made. The Non-GMO Project certification is essential to serving your desires for a sweet treat made from cleaner ingredients.
  2. Commitment to Quality – The Cambodian supplier maintains BRC certification to ensure that the utmost care is given to each individually wrapped piece of hard candy.
  3. Safety of Associates – To demonstrate a commitment to safety, the Cambodian supplier was OHAS 18001 certified, a leading occupational health and safety certification that ensures a safe workplace for all associates.
  4. Shared Values – The Cambodian supplier has been certified to the SA 8000 Standard, which requires a safe and ethical workplace for all associates who dedicate their time, attention and care to the creation of these delicious confections.

The American Licorice Company and the Aprati™ brand have a shared goal: to provide you with the highest quality confections, while also investing in our associates and the local communities. The Aprati™ brand lives this vision, investing in the local community in Cambodia just as the American Licorice Company has so passionately done in the United States. Aprati Foods® gives annual support to the Aogaah Foundation, which provides education to under-served communities in Phnom Pehn, Cambodia. This is close to our hearts, as it is through these efforts and others like it that we hope to support a better future for all.

Join us on a journey of flavor that will transport you across the globe. As you eat a piece of Frutati™ or Mocati™ candy, close your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself in a part of the world where passionate and dedicated people take the greatest care to make these delightful hard candies for you to enjoy. People who care about each other, the work they do, and investing in the happiness of all, at home and abroad.

A Century in the Making

Since 1914, American Licorice® Company has been a family owned and operated legacy company with a purpose. Since 2012, we have been focused on developing unique, world-class, Non-GMO certified hard candies, while staying true to our core purpose of investing in the happiness of our people, communities, and shared environment. This effort led us to launch the Aprati Foods® brand, which found its first inspiration and source in Cambodia, one of the great cultural havens of Southeast Asia. We created our flavors to be a fusion of multi-cultural influences from Asia and North America.
