Teddy Gray’s Sweet Factory


Established in 1826, Teddy Gray’s Confectionery has been a family-owned and run business from the very start. Passed down through five generations — with three generations working under the same roof, even today — this small British factory looks much like it must have one hundred years ago, filled with oversize copper boilers, candy twisted by hand, and nary a computer in sight. Though modernization looms outside its doors, this family business is committed to keeping traditional, hand-made methods of sweet-making alive.
