You will sell an attractive range of charity branded sweets, snacks and other products such as popcorn and crisps, from eye catching self-service point of sale boxes located prominently in work places, shops, leisure centres and other locations. The boxes are left at “host sites”, without commitment, and you service each site at regular intervals to restock and collect the cash.

With the choice of siting With Thanks boxes of confectionery, snacks, biscuits and flapjacks or healthier lighter snack options like popcorn in a Lite ‘n’ Lo snack company box you can meet the requirements and tailor make the boxes to the individual sites, ensuring they have the products they want, resulting in more sales!

Who are We and What Do We Do?

Barnack Confectionery Ltd, formed in 1986, is an established importer and distributor of sweets to the retail and high street sector. Specialising in private label confectionery, key clients include Spar, Topshop, Shell, Superdrug, New Look and many more. To date, the company operates from 150,000 square feet of high tech offices and warehousing and is ideally located for nationwide distribution.

In 2012, we launched “With Thanks”, our charity brand of sweets and snacks, which is sold by our franchise network across the UK, from highly visual display boxes. We now have over 40 franchisees, with territory still available nationwide.

Charity

We are extremely proud to be partnered with Kidney Research, who are a well-known leading charity committed to developing treatments, patient information and raising vital public awareness to help save lives.

There are three million people in the UK with kidney disease right now. One million of these don’t even know they have it and there is no cure. For decades our developments in treatment, better information for patients and raising vital public awareness have been saving lives.

So far we have donated over £240,000 to Kidney Research which has directly funded research for preventions and cures for kidney disease, helped towards support for patients and families living with the disease and also contributed to funds for Kidney Research to put on additional fund raising events across the country to bring in even more donations for the charity!
