Calico's main agenda has always been making and creating show-stopping fudge using our own unique recipes and we have always made sure our products are eye-catching and exciting with a taste to match and always look for ways we can use our creativity to introduce a point of difference.
Consequently, we branched out in 2012 to develop bespoke confectionery ranges for the impulse and seasonal markets and over time started to notice that there was a need to shake up the chocolate market too. In the hope of encouraging retailers to move away from mass produced chocolates we put our heads together to see what we could do about it.
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 after doing our research, 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.
Calico Cottage has always been a trade name and not a brand you would see in the shops - with this in mind we felt it was only right to release our new range with a fitting brand. The younger sibling of Calico was born as The Cambridge Confectionery Company and in 2017, we were able to launch our new range of chocolates handmade in the UK by our team of dedicated chocolatiers.
