We’ve been working with sweets for the past 20 years, so we like to think we know a thing or two about them. Justine – the company founder – grew up watching her mum making handmade fudge for her shop in Lyme Regis. Her mum was a stickler for doing things properly and beat every batch herself by hand. The result was delicious, crumbly, melt-in-the mouth fudges. Justine is proud to continue the tradition of selling high quality fudges as well as a few new sweets she’s added to the collection since. We sell our sweets exclusively at Borough Market, London.
