Jakemans - Functional confectionery's rising star

Jakemans ( is the fastest growing brand in the functional confectionery sector. Their current portfolio of unique formulations consists of a traditional menthol range, blister-pack lozenges and a sugar-free range suitable for diabetics.

Founded in 1907, Jakemans has built up an enviable reputation for its soothing menthol cough sweets and lozenges and currently produces over 100 million individual sweets per year. The traditional menthol range - with its quintessentially Victorian packaging - gives a nod to the company's rich heritage, while newer products like Lozease (lozenges in a blister pack) demonstrate the company's versatility and progression.

Earlier in 2007 Jakemans was acquired by the family-run company LanesHealth, home to leading brands such as Olbas and Kalms. Since the acquisition, Jakemans - which continues to operate as a separate entity - has flourished. Staff numbers have risen from 28 to 44 and the company has secured new national accounts.
