SIC Confectionery's story

 

During the war, with his italian origins, Paul Torassa was running a pasta factory in the south of France, in Nice.


Very fond of licorice and shaken by the war and its repercussions, he decided to smoothen the psychological wounds with his favorite treat. He decided to put some licorice into one of his pasta machines; a licorice spaghetti came out, then cut it into small pieces; the licorice candy was created. And this is how, in 1947, Paul started manufacturing candies, and especially: the  Licorice Pastille.


He founded this same year the Confiserie SIC.

 

One of the first product of the Confiserie SIC knew a immediate success.


Indeed, “Mental” was the flagship product of the confectionery during several years. Paul, declined this product into several others, especially thanks to the sugar coating process.

 

Mr Torassa, helped by his two sons; Jean-François and Gérard, kept on creating and purchasing new products; “Les Rendez-Vous” in 1976 and “Les Blocs des Vosges” in 1978.


Thanks to its several products and its notoriety, the Confiserie SIC got the interest from bigger companies; In 1986, the Confiserie SIC became a subsidiary of the DANNON group under the brand of «La Pie Qui Chante ».


Despite adventures such as the fire of the building in 1994, the confectionery wished to keep its authentic and family atmosphere, and decided to take back its independence in order to redevelop its own brands. The Torassa sons bought back the family business in 1997, and created the “Mountain Secret” range.
