The History of Mister Sweet....

In 1971, one man had a dream…
And that man was Darryl Senior…
To build a sweet factory that would produce the best sweets in the business Mister Sweet started in Primrose with only 15 employees, in a 600 square meter factory.

His tenacious personality and dogged single-mindedness ensured the business grew slowly.

For Darryl, the two keys to success in his business have been good quality product, great variety and constant innovation.
Keys that remain at the heart of the business today.

Where has Mister Sweet come from?
