And just like so many other British institutions, it is by focusing on quality since it was founded in 1911 that Thorntons has made itself a self-evident favourite among lovers of chocolate, fudge and toffee around the world.

Thorntons itself says “we specialise in making people smile” and its bestselling range includes customised gift boxes for birthdays, weddings and other major life events. Both Invercote and Incada are among the paperboards used by Thorntons.
