About us

The Tasty Tubs story began in 2009 when company founder, Steve Sutton, was on holiday in Majorca.

In 2009, Steve was the owner of a Spar convenience store on Colchester High Street.  Whilst on holiday, he discovered some sweets in a tub at a local shop.  He believed the product had real potential and, if marketed correctly, would be an excellent seller in his store back in the UK. Back in his shop, Steve quickly got in touch with suppliers and chose a range of quality treats, packaged them up in tubs and sold them near the till in his store.  Steve had put together 100 tubs and by the end of the week they had all gone!

After further trialling this idea with a local wholesaler, ‘Tasty Tubs’ were soon in demand.

After six months, the enterprise was so successful, Steve decided to sell his convenience store and concentrate all of his time and funds into expanding Tasty Tubs. He took out a lease on a warehouse, and bought his own small weigher and conveyor system.  Twelve months later, the production line was running 24/7 at maximum capacity.  Steve rented a second warehouse and took on some staff to share the workload. Branching out from our ‘Tasty Tubs’, he began selling retail ready products that were designed to offer amazing point of difference and increased footfall for his retail customers.  With the expanded product range and amazing new products, our brochure was born.

Fast forward to today and Tasty Tubs has its own state of the art weighing equipment and supplies several thousand retailers; producing and selling over 40,000 Tubs each week.

With the help of a great team of staff, we’re now one of the fastest growing confectionery and snacks wholesalers in the country.  Our product range has expanded and solidified into an offering that puts retailer growth at its core.  Using products that provide something different and are suited to increase footfall through our customer’s stores. We’ve also expanded our business and offer a wonderful van sales service run by our franchisees. We are also now creating own label product for businesses from farm shops to large department stores.  As our production capacity has increased, we’ve created an in-house design team to be able to produce bespoke confectionery solutions for customers looking for tailor-made, own brand products.
