Kinnerton is no ordinary brand – it was the first brand to offer character chocolate in the UK, back in 1978. Starting with just a desk, a very second hand Ford Cortina and a type-writer, Kinnerton Confectionery founders, Andrew Sellers and Clive Beecham, had the idea of making chocolates depicting the nation’s children’s favourite characters.
10 years later the business expanded into a factory in Norfolk, which has now grown into a child’s chocolate dreamland full of Easter Eggs, Advent Calendars, Lollipops and Chocolate Bars, produced in Kinnerton’s absolutely unique and pioneering ‘nut free’ environment. We are proud to be one of the few UK confectionery companies that is able to offer ‘nut safe’ chocolate.
We take so much care to make all our chocolate, because we know that parents want to get the balance right between knowing that the chocolate is safe, tasty, and that their kids are going to really enjoy their treat!
Our unique offering of favourite characters & licenses and delicious safe chocolate, has meant that the popularity of our products has grown and grown amongst kids, and some big kids too!
We have roles in production / operations - all levels leading to management, Finance, HR, I.T, Innovation and NPD, Commercial management, all areas of Supply Chain, Procurement, Group and Site Technical and Engineering, so once someone joins us we ensure any talent is developed and internal opportunities are communicated to the whole team.
