The Lollipop Manufactury started out as an investment for András Moldován, Levente Balogh and Gyula Fehér. They paid HUF 50 million (EUR 133,567.71) for 30 percent of the company, which was called Nauty Lollipop at the time. Since then, none of the businessmen remained among the owners, but the success story has continued. Lollipop Manufactory is already present in many European countries, and its customers include such big names as Disneyland in Paris, reports szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu.

A European-level enterprise with high added value
András Foltin, the head of the company became known in 2018 when participating in the show “Cápák közt” (Among the Sharks) and his business idea won the investors’ fund prize. “We saw from the beginning that the domestic market is rather narrow. We also realised that this market cannot support a complete factory. For this reason, we decided to focus on exports”, he explained. They wanted to create a European-level business with high added value, which is why they visited numerous exhibitions held on the continent to spread awareness of their products. They progressed slowly, and the foreign contracts came together little by little, creating a capital-intensive company.
Lollipops that are more than meets the eye
The Hungarian lollipops are made with innovative technologies. The manufacturers can print the logo of any company on these hard candies and are also flexible in formatting. Their goal was not to appeal to a large crowd at the cheapest price, but they wanted to pride themselves in offering purely handmade products. “With an ample amount of planning, brainstorming and creative energy, we achieved to stand out from other manufacturers. We believe that the only way to stay competitive on the international market is to strive for quality rather than mass production”, the head of the company said firmly.

Healthy lollipops among the product range
In addition to the fantastic flavours, these lollipops are healthier than people might think at first. The Lollipop Manufactury sells sugar-free versions and uses excellent sugar substitutes such as musmolt. This ingredient is a very good hydrocarbon, which doesn’t trigger an insulin reaction, nor can it cause tooth decay. It is also easy to work with, as it can be molded very well.
The company aims to develop further and launch its own brand in the near future. “We have just purchased license rights from Universal, for example. We will launch our lollipops on the market in a couple of months, with this move we strive to increase the experience value. We have countless ideas, which is typical at our company”, András Foltin revealed.
