Our History in Brief.

Lewis Confectionery Pty Ltd is a third generation, Australian family owned business operating in South Australia since 1946. Started by Harry Peters, Lewis Confectionery Pty Ltd carries on the heritage of George Lewis Ltd circa 1928, where Harry gained his confectioner's expertise. The association of the Lewis name and confectionery manufacture was well known throughout Adelaide, South Australia, from the mid 1940's as specialising in the manufacture of marshmallow, kokettes, chocolate coated cream and fruit centres, jellies and the classic Milk Rock.

The company, under the expertise of Harry, developed a unique range of confectionery using concentrated FRUIT JUICE in the place of sugar, to create products that have a unique flavour, texture and mouth feel. These products continue today as our flagship products and are sold throughout Australia.

In the early 1980's the company diversified its manufacturing facilities and began producing high quality products suitable for the Health Food Market. The acquisition of SA Chocolate Makers followed and the manufacture of carob and yoghurt, as well as chocolate, was now in-house. This provided flexibility but also enabled the development of varieties not normally seen at that time. No added sugar, fructose sweetened and soya varieties were all developed and now we offer one of the widest range of buttons and products available in Australia by any manufacturer.


Today the company continues under the direction and control of Harry's two sons. Evan Peters (Managing Director) and Peter Peters.
