Highland Toffee and Wham Bar maker goes into administration

New McCowans, the makers of Highland Toffee, has gone into administration.

The company, which employs over 100 people, appointed administrator Grant Thornton last Friday.

As well as Highland Toffee, the company also produced Wham bars, Pan Drops and Bonbons.

The company was founded in the late 19th century and was sold to Nestle in the 1960’s. It underwent two other acquisitions, most recently through two management buy outs in the last decade.
