Design

Design has been at the heart of our company for more than 45 years. This applies now more than ever before. At Candlelight we have a talented and experienced team of designers, creating the latest trends, top sellers and working with our customers to create unique design-led own brand ranges. Central to our business is innovation, creativity in design and a keen market eye. We offer this to our customers through the full support of our design team and product developers.

Our designers work closely with our customers to produce product, packaging and point of sale design tailored to meet the specific requirements of each customer’s brief.

In tune with the latest market trends, our design process combines original design with an astute commercial perspective. We strive to create the next big thing for our customers.

Ethical & Social Compliance

Social and Ethical Compliance has never been as important as it is today. The responsibility to source product from ethical manufacturers who can demonstrate compliance through a factory audit is a key demand of the marketplace. Our experience of working with manufacturers in the Far East stretches back many decades. These factory relationships extend to a multiple product category list of manufacturers working to the highest industry standards, constantly improving and compliant with the ethical demands of the world’s leading retail brands.

Over the last 10 years we have invested heavily to build a strong competency in this area. We have dedicated audit teams on the ground in China identifying suitable factories and working with them to improve and maintain standards on a continuous basis.

We are long standing members of SEDEX and work with most other major Ethical & Social Compliance houses. In addition, we also have the ability to conduct our own in house factory audits.

Environment – We are also members of the Forest Stewardship Council® under licence FSC® – C119585. We can provide FSC® certified products upon request.
