From famous names such as Cadbury to innovative new producers, the UK confectionery market is renowned for its creativity and quality. And with a wide variety of products to choose from, there’s something to suit every taste.
Given that’s the case, it’s no wonder that UK confectionery is one of the most popular food exports. In fact, according to the latest figures, confectionery exports (excluding products containing cocoa) were valued at £159 billion last year. Add in cocoa-based products such as chocolate, and the total value of UK confectionery exports jumps even higher.
So, if you’re looking to get your confectionery products into new markets, working with an experienced and reputable export partner is essential. That’s where Leverbrook Export comes in.

As a leading food and drink export company, we have over 50 years’ experience in helping UK businesses take their products to an international audience. We’re proud to work with some of the biggest names in confectionery, including big hitters such as Nestlé.
We source and supply a wide range of confectionery products from the UK, including chocolate, sweets, gum and more. So, whatever your requirements, we’re confident that we can help.
Our export services give you a broad spectrum of options. We offer all types of freight, and given the smaller size and weight of this category of food products, we can also help you with groupage and consolidation services, so you don’t have to order vast quantities of products to make an export shipment viable.
We also offer a comprehensive range of supporting services, meaning we can take care of everything – from the documentation to the translation of labels to adhere to local regulations.
With all of this taken care of, you can focus on what you do best – running your business.
Which UK Confectionery Products Are Most Popular Overseas?
A whole host of British confectionery products are popular with overseas consumers. Of course, chocolate is always a big seller. However, it’s biscuits that are the most in-demand UK confectionery export.
Markets with high volumes of expats, such as Dubai, are especially keen on UK biscuits. In fact, the most popular type of biscuit exported from the UK is the humble digestive, followed closely by ginger nuts. Other favourites include shortbread, Jaffa Cakes and Rich Tea biscuits.
Other popular UK confectionery exports include sweets, toffees and fudges, and sugar confectionery such as marshmallows.
