More recently, the company has innovated its variety of products, starting to manufacture fancy candy (hand-crafted with several kinds of drawings inside), which can be personalized in taste, drawings and colors. The company also produces lollipops with different formats, following the news in terms of cartoons. The production process involves an important manual component, essential to guarantee the authenticity of the products and the desired result. This company has a specialized team, with appropriate know-how to manufacture this products, requiring a specific knowledge. In order to diversify its production, the company seeks producers and suppliers of ground spices, such as nutmeg, clove, anise and cinnamon in order to undertake distribution agreement.
