Lanchester Wines acquires high-end confectioner

Durham-based Lanchester Wines has bought a luxury confectionery business in Wetherby.

Bon Bon's (Wholesale) Ltd supplies independent retailers and visitor attractions, with the deal securing 91 jobs and readying both companies for future expansion.

The acquired business will become part of Lanchester Wines' gifting division, Lanchester Gifts, which supplies a variety of gift box formats to retail businesses including major high street chains and online stores.

Bon Bon's will continue to operate as a stand-alone business under the existing Bon Bon's brand with its directors and founders Mark Rowntree and Peter Julian continuing to manage the team.

Rowntree said: "Both Peter and I firmly believe Lanchester Wines and Lanchester Gifts offer Bon Bon’s the right home for both the business and our team.

"Both companies possess a family business ethos and share many common values. This acquisition provides an excellent fit for the companies’ customers, suppliers and staff allowing us to grow with an extended knowledge-base."
