From our family to yours – Traditional sweet making with a contemporary twist

The Australian Sweet Company is an Australian family-owned and operated business that grew out of a family love of all things sweet.

My mum, Nell, has been in the confectionery business for over fifteen years. She knows sweet making! With my background in mechanical engineering and a fascination with how things work, we wanted to pool our talents to create something wonderful.

In 2012, we saw an opportunity to start a business together, making a small range of peanut brittle varieties. We were astonished by how popular they were, and quickly discovered that people yearned for traditional-style sweets crafted from quality ingredients.  And quickly expanded the range to include traditional rock candies and boiled sweets.


Inspired to offer our customers greater variety, we purchased Ropan Candy Makers in WA. Bringing all the sweet-making equipment back to Melbourne, where we set up expanding our confectionery factory in Seaford. Now were able to add gobstoppers to our range and began to experiment with new peanut brittle varieties. We now offer thirteen different variations of peanut brittle!

All of our sweets are handcrafted from the finest ingredients, sourced locally wherever possible, to deliver a quality product that is far superior to its mass-produced counterparts. Our entire range is naturally gluten-free, without compromising on flavour.

Following time-honoured recipes, we have created a scrumptious range of brittles, rock candies, lollipops and gobstoppers that includes all of your old favourites along with exciting new flavours and texture combinations.

These days, I channel my engineering knowledge into process improvements and developing new products. Mum works right alongside me, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

I invite you to browse our website and check out our mouth-watering range. Our retail stockists are listed here, as well as our wholesalers for each state. Feel free the call or email us with any queries.

With love,
