Radfords has been making fudge since the 1950’s and has moved factory 4 times; on each occasion it has found bigger and better premises to manufacture an ever increasing range of fudge and confectionery.  Colin and Jenny Tyler bought the business in 2006 and for 10 years.  It is a family business and, despite its recent and rapid growth, it retains a small and personal approach.  The factory is situated in rural Somerset and the property is owned by Prince Charles (part of the Duchy of Cornwall Estate) and we are proud to be tenants and custodians of an Edwardian factory building that has a fascinating history.

Brief summary about company



We would describe our processes and techniques as artisan and traditional.  Our fudge is made in copper kettles and, once cooled, it is cut by hand and packed by hand – no robots here!

Colin is the Managing Director and brings a wealth of industry experience.  He is a graduate of Food Science and spent 15 years working for large Plc food companies before buying Radfords Fine Fudge 10 years ago.  During his ownership the business revenues have grown 500%! 

We have a very experienced team, and with over fifty years of heritage, we are proud to say we have the ‘know how’ to ensure the highest standards in everything we do.

The factory has achieved SALSA accreditation.

Product range

We produce over 50 flavours of fudge but, despite being very different in style, our crumbly butter fudge along with our smooth vanilla fudge remain our most popular.  We have recently (2014) invested in new equipment that gives us a three-fold increase in our capacity.  We therefore have capability and ambitions for immediate growth.  As well as our award winning fudge, we have also diversified into other confectionery products such as brittles, honeycomb, nougat and marshmallows.

All of our fudge is ambient and has 9 months shelf-life from manufacture.
