Chocolatiers Confectioners Conservationists
A family business from Cambridgeshire known as Calico Cottage. Having been established since 1989 manufacturing in-store fudge-making systems, we branched out in 2012 to re-pack and bespoke label confectionery 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 are now able to include The Cambridge Confectionery Company as a branded range for those who do not require own labelled products.
Having provided a wide range of tourist attractions and garden centres with their own labelled range of sweets for five years, it became clear that there was a need to shake up the chocolate market and move away from mass produced chocolates to develop something truly handmade, visually stunning, using premium quality Belgian couvertures but still offering good value. In 2017, we launched a new brand of chocolates made by our team of dedicated chocolatiers. The Cambridge Confectionery Company had been born.
Currently the range is offered through a number of retail partners; Tourist Attractions, Garden Centres and High Street Stores. Details on our online store to come soon.
As of March 27th 2018 we have officially launched a range of impulse bags of sweets which use 100% compostable packaging!
Wherever possible The Cambridge Confectionery Co. is dedicated to eliminating single use plastics from our range. It’s not always possible but wherever we can achieve this we will. 80% of our hand-packed range of sweets is now available in compostable packaging that replaces single use plastics.
We have launched this new packaging alongside some of our conservationist customers and the first phase of this launch will continue through April with various press coverage. You can see how this packaging works by following the Watch Our Video link below - if you would like to be involved in the second or third launch phases please contact us for details.
We’re incredibly excited to be at the forefront of this change in the confectionery industry. We’re also pleased to say we are members of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil.
