Capabilities

Over the course of a half century in business, the Warrell Corporation has developed unsurpassed capabilities in numerous key candy manufacturing areas, including:

  • Pan Roasting -

    We feature one of the finest pan roasting, or hot panning operations in the USA. Our state-of-the-art gas fired rotating copper pans require a precise combination of temperature, quality ingredients, and care to ensure nuts are roasted for ideal flavor and color.
    Capacity: 14 million pounds per year

  • Chocolate Panning -

    Our chocolate panning operation can produce a chocolate, yogurt, or fruit flavored coating with a highly polished surface for candies with a fruit, caramel, or nut center.
    Capacity: 13 million pounds per year

  • Chocolate Enrobing -

    Our facility includes an enrobing area that coats our products by passing them under a chocolate “waterfall.” We use chocolate, yogurt, compound, and many other coatings.
    Capacity: 17.6 million pounds per year

  • Brittles/Nut Crunches -

    Our highly advanced brittle and crunch cooker, affectionately referred to as the “Nutmaster,” is the centerpiece of our brittles/nut crunch operation. This cooker seamlessly combines various syrups with nuts, crunches, and fruits.
    Capacity: 14 million pounds per year

  • Caramel -

    With our 2009 acquisition of the Classic Caramel plant in York, PA, we now offer more than 30 caramel formulas. The plant features two separate cooking systems that enable us to produce two distinct caramel products simultaneously. We supply caramel ingredients to other manufacturers and commercial bakers as well as nationally-known retailers. This facility can produce all types of caramel ingredients from dulce de leche, ice cream variegate, to bits, and many more types of caramel for all advanced applications.
    Capacity: 20 million pounds per year

  • Taffy -

    An egg whip style process is used to manufacture delicious tasting taffy.
    Capacity: 4 million pounds per year

Support Areas

Our capabilities also extend to various essential support areas, including:

  • Peanut Butter Pillows -

    Hand-pulled satin shells cover a flaky center of thin layers of crunchy, golden, peanut butter that provides a beautiful finishing touch to your specialty products. These are also called Peanut Butter Duets or peanut butter pillows.

  • Dry Roasting -

    We have two high capacity dry roasting rooms that are separately designated for peanuts and tree nuts.

  • Packaging -

    Our vast assortment of packaging options include vertical and horizontal form fill and seal baggers, stand-up zippered bags, multi-cavity tray packing, high speed bar wrappers, variety club packs, PET jars, shippers, canisters, trays, and much more.

  • Contract Candy Making -

    Understanding that not every manufacturer has the capacity to keep up with heavy demand, we offer reliable contract candy manufacturing services to help you meet your production requirements. We’ve been actively engaged in candy co-manufacturing since the early 1980s; it now represents more than 80 percent of our total sales volume. With two state-of-the-art facilities and new, modern equipment, we can accommodate contract candy manufacturing projects of all types. We will partner with you in every aspect of the process – product conception, creation, packaging, distribution and marketing – to ensure you’re able to deliver the high-quality candy products your customers have come to expect.

  • Private-Label Candy Making -

    We offer comprehensive private-label candy manufacturing services for entities such as mass and club retailers, supermarkets and drug and convenience stores. You will have access to an expert candy design team and innovative co-development approach that allows for your input in every aspect of the process. Our substantial experience collaborating with retailers and other confectionery and snack companies enables us to provide fast turnaround times in every phase of the product development and production process. You’ll enjoy the benefits of a high-quality private label candy product that will meet your aggressive profit margin requirements.
