The Cambridge Confectionery Company is a Calico Cottage brand...
We are The Cambridge Confectionery Company; the younger sibling of a family owned, manufacturing business from Cambridgeshire known as Calico Cottage UK. Established in 1989 as the European arm of Calico Cottage Inc, Calico Cottage is the World's largest manufacturer of fudge-making equipment and ingredients. Calico's main agenda has always been the manufacture of in-store fudge-making systems which allow retailers to create show-stopping and delicious fudge using our own unique recipes. However, we branched out in 2012 to develop bespoke confectionery ranges for the impulse and seasonal markets.
These impulse lines of confectionery were all developed and themed to suit the customer and their market, complete with bespoke displays and POS we were able to offer quite a unique service. We have recently taken that one step further and now offer this range of sweets in plastic free packaging. We use fully certified home compostable bags complete with a recyclable tie and tag. The tag can be bespoke printed or for those who do not require own labelled products, we offer The Cambridge Confectionery Company branding instead. Please get in touch for details if you would be interested in stocking our plastic free range!
We have always made sure our products are eye-catching and exciting with a taste to match and regularly look for ways we can use our creativity to introduce a point of difference. Over time we started to notice that there was a need to shake up the chocolate market and try to encourage retailers to move away from mass produced chocolates. With decades of experience in making fudge behind us, the logical thing was to produce our own range of chocolate, giving us complete creative control. In 2016 we took the plunge and immediately found ourselves up to our necks in chocolate, creating truly handmade and visually stunning products using premium quality couvertures but still offering great value. In 2017, we were able to launch our new range of chocolates handmade and hand-packed by our wonderfully talented and dedicated production team. The Cambridge Confectionery Company had been born - and continues to grow!
Currently our products are offered through a number of retail partners across the UK, USA and Canada; Tourist Attractions, Garden Centres, QVC and High Street Stores.
