Made in Chicago Featured Company: Primrose Candy Company

Posted by Marketing Support on Jun 14, 2018 2:05:00 PM

Primrose Candy is a family owned candy manufacturer since 1928. Primarily a hard candy manufacturer for the first 40 years of the companies history, Primrose expanded in the late 1960’s to include chewy candies like caramel and salt water taffy. A few decades later they then added popcorn confections.

Primrose manufacturers confections to the highest quality standards using both old world candy making techniques and state of the art equipment in its 130,000 square foot facility. Over 80% of the business is derived from private label and contract manufacturing. Thus, Primrose not only has to meet its own high standards, but also the scrutiny of those who put their name on their products.

In addition to candy, Primrose is also making private label nutraceuticals, manufacturing candy base, and adding various active ingredients.
