Cloetta currently has no own pick & mix concept in Sweden, but has run one in Finland for many years.

Pick & mix is estimated to account for about 30% of the total volume in the Swedish confectionery market.

Candyking previously supplied 43,000 metric tons for Coop Sverige per annum, which accounted for 14% of its volumes.
