This further anchors our position as a global supplier of confectionery based inclusions and decorations. All your contacts at CBD will remain in place – business as usual.
At the same time we will formally be merging the recently acquired business of County Confectionery into Orchard Valley Foods Group. Giving a joint management structure and sharing technical and product development resources.
