Treat Yourself to a World of Flavours
20th April 2020
Award-winning food gifting company TTK Confectionery Ltd specialising in product design and development - their products can be found in over 25,000 retail stores worldwide.
Growing means having a good team around
Jessica explains how the business has developed;
We started out by selling through distributors who would sell on to gift shops, garden centres and visitor centres. As the business evolved and expanded, our customers have become a broader mix of profiles.
We now supply larger more recognisable retailers like Next, Dunelm, Debenhams and Urban Outfitters. We also work with overseas distributors, as a gateway to internationally based retailers - which has been an exciting learning curve. We source ingredients and materials from overseas as well as exporting our products, so finding a partner to help us manage our international trade was high on our list.
Having met Mike and Rachel from Spatial Global, it was obvious there was great synergy from the start. Their associations with other similar confectioners and food manufacturers within the Keswick enterprises group, Spatial Global's parent company, gave us confidence that they understood the complexities of our business. As experts in import and export, we feel we have found a great partner to grow our business through overseas trade.
Innovators in the world of packaged confectionery and gifting
TTK work with retail buyers to create unique and exciting confectionery and food gifting ranges for both seasonal and every day requirements. Their in-house design team produce innovative packing solutions based around trending pantones, patterns and silhouettes. TTK work with partners locally as well as internationally to source the best confectionery products for each specific project.
Owner Jessica concludes:
Retail buyers love to feel part of the creative process. Here at TTK we design in partnership with our customers, creating unique products to help them stay one step ahead of their competitors.
What the future holds
TTK are attending two international trade fairs in 2020; ISM, the world’s largest confectionery and chocolate fair held annually in Cologne and Expo a sweet and snacks fair in Chicago. By showcasing their products and design capabilities TTK are looking to grow their overseas customer base and find new ingredients and suppliers. With Spatial Global as a partner, TTK can trade internationally with added confidence.
