Created in 2012 by the sisters Ina and Rositsa Paunova, a young Bulgarian brand goes on a mission to uncover all fragrant secrets of the Bulgarian oil-bearing rose and to explore all possible applications of this edible flower in food. The first and only brand dedicated exclusively to the role of roses in food and culinary art, Rosey’s mark shapes the concept of “Floral gastronomy from Bulgaria”.
Rosey’s mark aims at developing and promoting the role of roses in food both through its products and by series of activities, such as events, collaborations with professional chefs and culinary experts, and creation of original recipes with roses. With everything we do, our team aims at spreading the word about the possibilities roses give to contemporary nutrition, including in the growing functional foods category.
FROM THE CONCEPT TO THE PRODUCT
Our product portfolio so far includes the following categories: chocolate, tea, jams and rose water for culinary use.
The chocolate with roses product line features boutique handmade chocolate, the first one on the market with Bulgarian rose oil in its recipe. The first taste, dark chocolate with roses, was launched in 2014, followed by two more in 2015 – milk chocolate and white chocolate. All 3 variations having a distinctive rose tinge, these chocolate bars are a true attraction for high-quality craft chocolate lovers.
The jam collection stands out with original new recipes which were presented for the first time in 2016. All natural and with 100% fruit sugars, the new jam tastes are fresher and healthier because it doesn’t contain cane sugar or sweeteners other than apple juice. New blends of roses and fruits enter the spotlight to delight the consumers. Roses, raspberries or strawberries? Why not all together!
Rosey’s mark tea collection includes selected edible flowers from Bulgaria, of highest organic quality and suitable both for tea preparation and cooking purposes. Now you can enjoy in your kitchen the edible benefits of Bulgarian oil-bearing rose and lavender blossom.
Rosey’s mark Rose Water for cooking and drinks is 100% natural, certified organic product obtained by direct fire-water distillation of fresh Bulgarian oil-bearing flowers. This is also the first distilled rose water bottled in Bulgaria especially for culinary purposes.
