History: In 1980, Mr. Joanis Yusuf opened his first candy store in the heart of Malmö, Sweden. Popularity spurred the expansion of several candy stores throughout Sweden during the eighties. By 1994, Mr. Yusuf began manufacturing and supplying candy to various Swedish retail outlets. The Pick & Mix confectionery industry rapidly expanded and become a staple in many Swedish retail stores.
By 1997, the demand had exceeded production capacity. Mr. Yusuf turned to his esteemed manufacturing colleagues to help meet the demand and began outsourcing the production of his coveted and patented Scandinavian recipes. The shift in business practices led to the present-day company, Candy People. Candy People quickly became the market leader with unsurpassed quality at low prices.
Candy People soon started supplying the popular Scandinavian treats to Northern Europe by 2002. 2005 witnessed the expansion to the entire European Market. The Asian, Australian and the Middle East market grew by 2010. Today, Candy People is forging the way into the North American and South American market.
