February 2018 - Ampersand launch Cleeve's Confectionery
Ampersand are delighted to annouce the addition of Cleeve's Confectionery to our portfolio.
Cleeve's is a brand steeped in Irish history, with origins from 1882. The company started out making tins of condensed milk in it's Limerick factory, and then turned to toffee. It was even referenced in Angela's Ashes, and was seen as one of life's simple pleasures in those days.
After years of being a household name, Cleeve's came off the market 30 years ago. However, consumers might be familar with products such as Iced Caramels, which were manufactured by Cleeve's but have been available under other brand names.
Now in 2018, Ampersand are exclusive distributors for the range which includes hanging bags of Iced Caramels, Original Toffee, Original Fudge, Chocolate Caramels and Lucky Numbers Assortment, and the count line range of Macaroon Bar, Sea Salt Caramel Crunch Bar and Choffo Bar.
Proud to be Irish, and one of the few Irish owned and manufactured chocolate ranges - Cleeve's are associated with Guaranteed Irish and Bord Bia Origin Green. They have also received the Gluten Free certification on the hanging bags.
Ampersand have launched in to the trade this week (w/c 12th February) and are now concentrating on distribution to all our customers.
The feedback so far has been very positive and we look forward to a bight future with Cleeve's.
