Hi, this is Carambar & Co!

What do 13 mythical candy and chocolate brands do when they meet each other? Easy, they found Carambar & Co!

The embodiment of the French know-how, this new adventure whets our team’s appetite. Our mission: making everyone smile, from morning to night. It is with this desire that our Carambarrés create and produce, every day, fun and indulgent products. Discretly, during their caramel break, some of our teammates even imagine our next jokes.

Marcq-en-Baroeul

“No kidding! The Carambar was born here, in 1954, and has always been produced in Marcq-en-Baroeul. By the way, did you know that, if you line up all the Carambar produced every year, you can travel the earth twice! What a performance as, at the same time, our 150 employees contribute to the production of the delicious Michoko and Gom’s for a total of 10 000 tons every year”.

Blois

“All you can see around me was imagined by Jean Nouvel at the beginning of the 90’. He designed the whole factory that was located, before, in the city centre. What a challenge! So now, I imagine that you want to discover what we produce? It is simple, you just have to taste the Poulain’s range of chocolate powders and tablets, the perfect choice for your breakfasts and after-school snacks”.

Saint-Genest

“At Saint Genest, no time to “make bubbles”! We produce the Malabar, Kréma and La Pie qui Chante’s products. It is a daily-challenge, but it remains a great pleasure! In a way, we are the experts of soft and hard candies, bubble-gums and jellies”.

    Our factory located at Saint Genest d’Ambière, in charge of the production for Krema, La Pie Qui Chante, Malabar and Dulciora, recently installed a wastewater treatment plant. Our ambition is to purify the water used in our production process so that it can be recycled in the natural environment.

Strasbourg

« Proud of its History, this chocolate factory was built almost 100 years ago, in the heart of the city of Strasbourg. Created by Poulain, it has been owned by Suchard since 1931. It is a bit like a big family settled in its territory for several generations. Implementing a process of Sustainable Development for more than 5 years, nested in the greenery, that site is a place where it is good to work.
But that factory also heads for future. Indeed, the arrival of Terry’s, our English brand, is a great opportunity to invest in modern and innovating equipments. What an incredible and rare adventure in a professional career!”

    Developed by the start-up Inergys, installed in July 2017 on the roof of the factory, this urban and innovating wind turbine produces up to 10 MW of electricity each year. It allows us to reduce our carbon footprint (1 ton of CO2 less each year) and is part of our global environmental policy.

Vichy

« It is a family atmosphere, really! We are 18 employees, so we perfectly know each other. It is probably what makes the difference at work: we all are passionate about what we do. It takes at least that when you have to produce the one and only pastille Vichy! By the way, I really invite you to visit the factory shop, it is worth it !»

The word of the Caram'Boss

Carambar & Co is a new and young company, founded in May 2017, our collective goal being to revitalize some famous brands like Terry’s, the  legendary British Chocolate Orange, but also Carambar, Poulain, Kréma, Michoko, Vichy…  all part of the French heritage. Brands sometimes a little left aside, but all of which make us remember great childhood memories.

To succeed, we made the consistent choice to set up 2 R&D teams in Blois and St Genest and to relocate our chocolate and candy production in France. A strong presence in the  French market but also already in a dozen of countries in Europe and beyond.

More than anything else, Carambar & Co is a team of highly motivated and creative people who want to take a different approach to many major international companies, in terms of thinking and behaviour. We strive to give our employees maximum freedom: freedom to think, to speak, to decide by themselves, to take initiatives. We like to work hard while having fun (or vice versa if you prefer), not taking ourselves too seriously whilst always showing professionalism and holding ourselves to high standards. That is our “Carambar & Co attitude”!

We put respect, listening and caring on the frontline of our commitments. We claim ways of working inspired by start-ups or midsize companies, made of agility, speed of action and risk taking, assuming a right for everyone to make mistakes.

Finally, we want to get strongly involved, individually and collectively, in environmental, health and ethical matters.

Carambar & Co is all that and many other things. This exciting adventure has just begun…
