Our Story


ABOUT TLC

The Tasmanian Licorice Company was born like all of the greatest ideas are: under a carport in the pouring summer rain, over a bottle or two of Tasmanian sauvignon blanc.  From a tiny spark of an idea, co-founders Jhon Entrop and Mel Andrewartha grew the increasingly adventurous plans until the Tasmanian Licorice Company was created.

From some disastrous first attempts at making licorice, the recipe was kneaded into shape over many months of trial and error.  Family and friends immediately got on board, sampling the different batches and providing much-needed feedback and support.

Within in months the business was growing rapidly and the hard descision of whether to take the plunge of turning for what was a sideline hobby, into a full on lucrative business had to be made. So weighing up many pros and cons the decision to "close up shop" as they say.

Enter Leesa, Aaron & Charlotte Bishop!

A small family living on 25 acres in the beautiful small town of Campania in the Coal River Valley region. For several years they had been looking for a small business to either start or take over, that was unique and in turn supporting other local Tasmanian businesses.

Though Leesa's current part time work, She had sampled and known about Jhon & Mel's fabulous Licorice. Then when she heard the news about them no longer producing this amazing treat, she thought this is a complete tragedy and decided to approach Jhon & Mel on the topic of taking over the business.

And so finally the little families dreams where answered.
