What our clients say

“Gudrun Commercial has been working with the J&K Confectionery team for almost 10 years. We started off with only 1 reference for 1 customer. In the years to follow, we have intensified our cooperation on all levels: on the commercial, supply chain, R&D, technical and quality level. Team members from both our companies have worked hard on building our partnership, synergies and mutual growth. After almost ten years, we can say that all the hard work has paid off. Result: a very wide assortment of high quality chocolate products, on a year round basis. A worthwhile partnership.”

“It is a pleasure working together with J&K, as an agent pioneer in specialised food, directed by John Derbyshire. From the start I was impressed by their way of working, especially with M&S, which resulted in a double digit growth and the introduction of several SKU’s. The professionalism is showed again in the way the family has guaranteed the continuity of the company. Mike and Chris have now established a clear strategic and tactical plan which leads to a very motivated and dedicated management and sales team. Nowadays I recognise J&K as an established, professional specialised food partner, known for his detailed and complete process roadmap which leads us to very sharp product profiles and the right , suitable category and channel introductions.”

We began working with J&K in 2017 supplying three confectionery products. Since then we have collaborated to double the range with some innovative vegan and sugar free lines. With their guidance, we also received a gold audit from one of the UK’s most demanding customers.
