About The Confectionist

Hi, I'm Dawn and I am the crazy Geordie lady people know as The Confectionist!

My journey to becoming The Confectionist started over 20 years ago, creating innovative confectionary in a small mining village in Northumberland. As an award-winning creator, I am always looking for something out of the norm, that keeps our customers coming back for more. I have worked for years to create unique and tasty recipes, now extending my ranges to include vegan friendly fudge.

The Confectionist's biggest mission currently, is to create an inclusive range of confectionary for everybody to be able to enjoy, regardless of dietary requirements. Recently I perfected my recipe for a dairy free chocolate Fudge and aim to perfect many other flavours and options to remain an inclusive brand.

Giving my best to you, Dawn x

Wholesale Trade

Discover the Sweetest Wholesale Deals on Irresistible Treats.

The Confectionist offers wholesale trade prices to retailers and large scale companies. An additional product offered to retailers and larger companies are white label products.

White labelling occurs when the manufacturer of an item uses the branding requested by the purchaser, or marketer, instead of its own. The end product appears as though it has been produced by the purchaser.
