Jelly Belly Candy Company (Thailand) Ltd.
- Food Production & Processing
Jelly Belly Candy Company manufactures jelly beans and candies in the United States. It offers candy corns, as well as candies, including chocolates, sugar-free candies, gummies, sour candies, and confections. The company was founded in 1869 as Herman Goelitz Candy Co. and changed its name to Jelly Belly Candy Company in 2001. Jelly Belly Candy Company is headquartered in Fairfield, California.
In 2006, Jelly Belly, a company producing candy that had become inexplicably linked to American patriotism, made an important decision. The company, which was struggling to produce enough jelly beans to satisfy U.S. demands as well as international ones, was ready to build internationally. After careful consideration, Jelly Belly chose to build its 50,000 square foot plant in the free-trade zone in the Rayong Province of Thailand.
Jelly Belly was careful to assure its customers that producing candy in Thailand would not impact North American distribution, manufacturing or jobs. Instead, the Thailand facility supplies customers in 55 countries outside the United States. The facility has helped Jelly Belly to better serve Europe and reach emerging growth markets in China, India and the Middle East.
