About the Owners
Walkers Candy Co is owned by Ray and Lisa Edwards who purchased the business in August 2007. Ray has worked for the business for extended periods of time since it’s inception as a business in it’s own right when it was registered in 1982. He received his training from a Master Chocolatier and Confectioner. Over the years he has continued to develop his skills so that now he is able to produce the wonderful range of products that we now supply. Lisa brings with her an extensive background of business administration. Together they have a commitment to build the business and continue to supply superior quality hand made confectionery.
