Established in 1882, Cleeve's Irish Confectionery have been supplying the country with sweet treats and toffees for over a century. Best known for their slab toffee originally produced in County Limerick, Cleeve's Irish Confectionery exported their product internationally and became fondly remembered as an integral part of Ireland's confectionery throughout the 20th Century.
Today, Cleeve’s 2,000 sq metre factory is located in Newbridge, Co Kildare and employs 22 people in the factory and supports Irish jobs right throughout the supply chain. All of the confectionery lines from the Cleeve's range are made using the finest Irish dairy ingredients, a tradition dating back to 1882 when the Cleeve’s brothers first established the business in Limerick.
Cleeve’s is brand that is steeped in Irish heritage and gives consumers the opportunity to re-live nostalgic memories with the older generations and create new memories with the younger ones while also supporting Irish brands and jobs in the process.
