What does salacca mean?
Salacca is a trunkless palm tree wide-spread all over tropical Asia. It bears the salak fruit, known also under the name „snake fruit“ . The fruits which grow in a distinctively patterned, thin leathery hide ressemble large garlic cloves or lychees. The salak however has an agreeable sweet-sourly flavour unlike any other fruit.
Health, elegance, simplicity and nature – which are the main values of the lifestyle concept of salacca – are symbolised by the salak fruit.
How did salacca evolve?
The origins of salacca date back to her founder´s long stay in Asia. Fascinated by the healthiness, elegance and simplicity of Asian culture, Diana Brand had the idea to combine these basic elements in a modern Asia shop concept in Europe. Since 2001 salacca imports selected products according to the company´s lifestyle concept. These products come mainly from Malaysia and South Korea, where Diana Brand had lived herself.
After continuous growth of the company, a representative office was founded in South Korea in January 2009.
The main function of this office is to improve the "supply chain management" by optimizing the contacts with Korean producers as well as the shipment.
This office is managed by Ms. Cho, Kyu Yuen, an expert in Korean teas and health products.
