What was the seed for what is now your food business?
In 2011 I came to Romania to establish a social farm for disadvantaged women. Fast-forward to 2019 we are now growing vegetables and fruits and raising poultry and rabbits for our own needs and manufacture 12 different varieties of Italian cheeses. Which we sell to a local market to support our farm and use also for our own needs.
How was Caimac (English kaymak) Dairy born and who are the corporatists who moved to the country to write the milk story? How do you leave your rubber boot heels and how do you end up in debt for a product you believe in? (kaymak is a creamy dairy product similar to clotted cream, made from the milk of water buffalo, cows, sheep, or goats in Central Asia, some Balkan countries, some Caucasus countries, Turkic regions, Iran and Iraq.) Madalina and Adrian Cocan (photo below) are the two young owners of the Caimac Dairy brand. Until a few years ago there were two corporate people from Bucharest, she in high-heel shoes and dressed elegantly in the marketing office of a corporation, he an advertiser with a motor and the green Beetle.
