“The Traditional Candy maker and worldwide distributor since 1996”

About us

Sweetpack was founded in 1996 by owner Johan Melis and his wife Kris Maes. What started as a small production facility in his home town of Balen turned into an unexpected journey of specialized sweets in Lommel. As a production company, Sweetpack makes some of the typical specialties of Retro Candies like the candy whistles/lipsticks, seashells and dummies. Since the advent of his two sons, Sweetpack has also started the production of new dextrose and sorbitol sweets. Here for they started the sister company “Meldex” The strength of the company is our passion for the candies and the flexibility of its production. Due to the appreciation and the love for special candy making, Sweetpack is expanding every year. Besides making candy, we also distribute a lot of special candies like Candy Necklaces and Watches, Citric Fruits and Straws, Special Jellies, etc. Since 2016 Sweetpack also invested together with Meldex in a brand new production facility to make “Fruit-granulations” and the Mellies ® sweets based on dried fruit.
