Kerr‘s is one of Canada’s oldest confectionery companies, making traditional Canadian candy since 1895. It was started by two Scottish brothers who emigrated to Canada and started making candy in St. Thomas, Ontario.
All Kerr‘s products are manufactured in Canada, sourcing ingredients like milk, cream, butter, and maple syrup locally wherever possible. While many of Kerr‘s products use traditional recipes, they have also been innovating with new products and flavours to developing items like Creamy Caramels, Fruit Taffy, and Ginger Drops.
Kerr‘s believes in producing candy for all Canadians, which is why their products are manufactured in a peanut-free, tree nut-free, and gluten-free facility. There also have many options for vegetarian and vegan diets, those on sugar-reduced diets, as well as Kosher and Halal conscious consumers.
