Hancocks in Liverpool is hosting its 60th anniversary event this week (12th May 2022).

The UK’s leading confectionery wholesaler is marking its 60th anniversary year with events across the country – and now it’s the turn of Liverpool.

The depot on Vesty Business Park in Bootle will be celebrating the milestone on Thursday 12th May with an event for customers and suppliers.

Customers will have hundreds of offers to take advantage of as well as prize draws and giveaways. There will also be the opportunity to chat with the team and suppliers.

The Liverpool event is sponsored by Haribo, Nestle, Mondelez and Frisia. A customer Treaty Pie will be making celebratory 60th birthday cupcakes.

The Hancocks depot in Liverpool first opened in 2007 and has grown to employ nine staff.

The depot supplies retailers across Merseyside with confectionery from around the world. It also offers a click and collect service for customers who prefer to shop online.

Sixtieth anniversary celebrations will be taking place across the Hancocks stores throughout this year.

The wholesaler has its roots in the East Midlands and was founded by Ray and Liz Hancock who began wholesaling confectionery from their sweet shop in 1962.

In 1969 the second store opened in Sheffield with Stoke on Trent, Manchester and Birmingham opening shortly after. By 1986, Hancocks had seven stores across the UK.

Hancocks Liverpool store manager Kelly Rodgers said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating the 60th anniversary in Liverpool and are looking forward to welcoming customers and suppliers to the depot.

“Hancocks has a long 15 year history in Merseyside. Over the last two years the business has certainly evolved to meet the changing shopping habits of our customer base and of course to adapt to the challenges of Covid19. It makes this celebration even more important – it’ll be great to get everyone under one roof.

“It is a chance for us to talk to retailers to show them what we have planned for the coming year, the offers available to them and the new confectionery lines we’ll be introducing.”

Hancocks Chief Operating Officer, Jonathan Summerley, said: “Reaching such a milestone anniversary is a testament to how our teams across the business work together, the service and products we’re able to supply to retailers, however large or small and the suppliers we work with on a daily basis.

“As with all retailers, we had to adapt and evolve over the years, more so in the last two years. We’ve invested heavily in our online offering, and this combined with the 14 depots across the UK, means we offer flexibility and the opportunity for retailers to shop in whatever way suits them.”

Hancocks is the UKs leading confectionery wholesaler with 14 nationwide cash and carry stores and an online channel www.hancocks.co.uk. Customers can shop online 24/7 with delivery to the door or click and collect options.

Hancocks is the one stop shop for confectionery for over 25,000 independent retailers and is part of the World of Sweets group.
