We've been manufacturing confectionery for over 130 years and whilst we use traditional recipes for our much loved sweeties, are constantly looking at new products and flavours.
We have a team of talented sugar boilers who manufacture our sweets in Scotland. Our traditional sweets are loved across the world and recognised for the flavours, texture and quality.
Ross's of Edinburgh History
James Ross founded the company in 1880, by making tablet and other sweets in the back shop for direct sale to the public. He was joined by his son, Andrew, in 1919. On James’ retirement Ross’s stopped retailing and concentrated on manufacturing for sale to other retailers.
Throughout the years the family created products which have become popular, many of which are still produced today.
Jenny's Homemade Sweets History
The story of Jenny’s starts with Jenny Paterson. While running a sweet shop in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, in the 1950s and 60’s, she approached two young men working in Mackay’s Sweetie Factory, and asked them to join her to start Jenny’s Homemade Sweets at new premises in Jocks Lodge.
When Jenny retired the men continued to work hard building up Jenny’s reputation as the best supplier of delicious boiled sweets, puff candy, tablet, macaroon and Jenny’s famous Rhubarb Rock. It was hard work but they enjoyed growing Jenny’s together for the next 27 years.
