International confectionery giant Haribo has announced a £22 million investment programme for its manufacturing facility at Castleford in West Yorkshire as it seeks to strengthen its standing in the UK market. The Castleford site currently produces more than 30,000 tonnes of sweets annually. The Haribo portfolio includes popular brands such as Starmix, Tangfastics and Gummy Bears.

Jon Hughes, Managing Director of Haribo UK, said: “As we continue to face tough challenges following the ongoing impact of Covid-19, we are showing our resilience and commitment to world-class production in an increasingly competitive market.

“Investing £22 million into our already world-class manufacturing facility will give us greater opportunity to produce the variety of sweets that we know bring childlike happiness to our customers. We focus on making great tasting treats that are just sweet enough and will continue to look for ways to reduce sugar content where we can.”

Based in Germany, Haribo has been present in the UK since 1972 when it purchased a stake in Dunhills, a traditional English company well known for the regional specialty ‘Pontefract Cakes’. In 1994, Haribo acquired the remaining shares and established the Haribo brand within the UK.
