Our Story

The Jelly bean factory


that's flavour!

Here at The Jelly Bean Factory we’re all about saying yes. Saying yes to adventures, to the finest foods, to fun, to friends, to family, to the 6am workout, to binge watching your favourite TV series, to adrenaline, to dreaming of travel.

We believe that flavour should turn your world upside down, should create an instantaneous moment, a memory, a daydream… Say yes, that’s life. Say yes, that’s flavour. 

Yes, that’s everything you need to know

that’s history!

The Jelly Bean Factory ® was founded in Dublin, Ireland in 1998 by father and son Peter and Richard Cullen, with one guiding principle; to bring the finest of flavours to people around the globe. In 2014, The Jelly Bean Factory ® was acquired by Cloetta, and the rest, as they say, is history!
