Sugar-free sweet manufacturer The Candy Makers have welcomed a personal visit from the Royal Family to their Leeds-based factory. HRH The Princess Royal visited the UK’s only sugar-free confectioner with Halaal status to take a tour of their factory unit to see their traditional methods for sweet production using copper pans in action.

Also on site for the special occasion were a number of key suppliers to the business, most notably packaging specialists National Flexible who have established a strong working relationship with the confectionery producers since their business was first formed, keeping their busy packing machines supplied with high quality printed film to produce the branded sweet bags which are now exported all over the world.

Director Paul Finney said, “We were extremely excited to receive a royal visit – the Princess Royal enjoyed the day and there was plenty of time to sample our products, particularly the ones with luxury centres!”

Candy Makers’ core business is the manufacture and packing of sugar-free sweets. They have launched their own brand and have a growing list of customers that include Weight Watchers, The Sweet Emporium and House of Sarunds. Their unique Halaal certification enables them to trade in countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia and they are looking to expand their exporting arm with plans to create further growth and employment in the near future.
