Environmental policy

We at Polkapojkarna value sustainable production and manufacturing. We cherish the traditional candy stick craftsmanship and genuine raw materials and we want the production and flavors to be as authentic as possible, as it used to be.

Our handmade confection is always made with natural ingredients accordning to traditional recipes and we strive to buy our ingredients/raw materials locally. We also climate compensate as much as possible.

When it comes to our traditional, old-fashioned fudge and caramel we often get the question if it contains palm oil. It’s becoming more and more common to replace genuine ingredients like butter and cream with palm oil to keep the prices down. At Polkapojkarna we don’t one single caramel or fudge that contains palm oil, so the answer is a big no. We make our caramels and our fudge with cream and butter because it’s not only better for the environment but because it simply tastes much better.
