Maritime Marzipan is owned and operated by Mike and Jessica Fritz, who emigrated from Germany to Canada over a decade ago and moved to PEI in 2016. The couple quickly discovered that the beloved marzipan of their homeland was not yet widely known in the Maritimes. A few short months later, Islanders were introduced to Maritime Marzipan, and it’s been a sweet journey ever since. Today, Maritime Marzipan runs two flagship stores – one at Founders’ Food Hall and Market, and another at St. Peter’s Landing. The Fritzes also produce a line of high-quality chocolate bars under the brand Fritz Chocolates. Furthermore, their marzipan and chocolate lines are available for sale at several retail stores across the region and online. They exclusively use the finest Belgian chocolate and natural flavours in their marzipan and chocolate products. All of their products are gluten-free and all dark chocolates are dairy-free.
