Crazy about candy production

Our organization

Tanis is all about enabling manufacturers, with approximately 200 employees all over the world, to produce reliably high-quality gummies and jellies, with whatever individual twist they choose to infuse. We do that by supplying complete production lines and personalized support, all of which is inspired by our exceptional, continous developing knowledge and craftmanship in sugar (and non-sugar) confectionery and process technology.
