Bon Bon Buddies, the European manufacturer of character and branded confectionery, has be recognised as Best Consumables Licensee 2017 at the inaugural Universal Studios UK Licensee Awards 2017.

The awards, which were held at the Universal Partner Day in Picture House Central, London, saw Bon Bon Buddies named among seven businesses as one of the entertainment giant’s top licensees for the year.

The confectioner was commended for demonstrating the best performance, innovation and teamwork among some of the world’s most well-known brands and fellow finalists, including Kinnerton, Finsbury Foods and Kraft Heinz.

The award now strengthens Bon Bon Buddies’ existing relationship with Universal Studios, one which started in 2014 after the confectioner secured the license to produce Minion-themed products following the success of the animated comedy Despicable Me.

Justin Thomas, managing director of Bon Bon Buddies, said: “This is a fantastic way to round off a busy year for Bon Bon Buddies.

“Receiving any award in recognition of your hard work is brilliant, but it always means that little bit extra when it comes from one of your longstanding partners, especially when you’re up against established global brands.

“Our products – from our own brand confectionery to licensed goods – require hard work at every level, and I am grateful for the support and efforts put in by our teams across the business who help to grow and nurture our successful relationships not only with Universal Studios, but with all of our partners.”

Established in 1993, Bon Bon Buddies has grown to become Europe’s premier provider of licensed and own-brand character confectionery to more than 40 countries worldwide.
