Kerr’s is one of Canada’s oldest confectionery companies, making traditional Canadian candy since 1895. It was started by two Scottish brothers who immigrated to Canada and started making candy in St. Thomas, Ontario.

All Kerr’s products are manufactured in Canada and the company sources ingredients such as milk, cream, butter, and maple syrup locally as much as possible. While many of Kerr’s products use traditional recipes, they have also been innovating with new products and flavours to develop items like Creamy Caramels, Fruit Taffy, and Ginger Drops.

Kerr’s believes in making candy for all Canadians, which is why the products are manufactured in a nut and gluten-free facility. The company also has options suitable for vegetarians and vegans and Halal and Kosher-conscious consumers.
