Business Description

Business Profile

This company is a wholesale sales and marketing company distributing a range of confectionary, liquorice and sweets in bulk packets as well as dedicated gluten and sugar free sweets under well-known brand names. Its products are produced, packed and labelled by third party manufacturers.

 

The business was established in 1997 and has an excellent reputation and a long standing customer base.

 

Its customers range from Amazon (c50% of sales) through to individual sweet shops, pharmacies and small retail chains. It deliberately does not supply the large multiples.

 

It has long standing relationships with a large number of European and UK based confectionary manufactures and it supplies their products in their original packaging to its customers. It imports from approx.  42 European manufacturers/suppliers. It also orders from approx. 40 UK suppliers. If one product range should no longer be available, there are plenty of other products to sell.

The recent pandemic has seen the business pivot towards online sales and Amazon filled the gap caused by retail shop closures. The Amazon sales have continued to climb and now that retail shops are re-opening the business is poised to capitalise on a virtual doubling of turnover in the last twenty four months.

 

Since 1997 the business has been wholesaling a wide range of confectionaries suitable for Gluten and Sugar free diets, to the high standards using only the finest ingredients. They distribute some 650 products, which are available from all leading health food stores, pharmacies, garden centres and through their Amazon shop.

 

The business has exclusive import rights for the UK for a lot of its top selling products and for some has had these exclusive arrangements for over 10 years.

 

The business is an Amazon Approved Vendor. This means Amazon stocks their products. They do not ship any products directly to Amazon’s customers.
