HARIBO, the world’s biggest manufacturer of fruit gums and liquorice products entered the UK market in 1972, when it acquired a majority stake in the English firm Dunhills (Pontefract).

Dunhills’ great product portfolio of traditional lines was retained and the famous round liquorice Pontefract Cakes are still produced today. It is now Haribo Dunhills’ most traditional product, supported by a series of other famous and popular liquorice and fruit gum sweets.
