DetailsJoseph Dobson's is a fascinating story of a family owned business which, from humble Victorian origins, has prospered to become one of the largest privately owned confectionery manufacturers in Yorkshire.
Joseph’s son Thomas John was carrying trays of sweets downstairs, he slipped and the 18 varieties got mixed up. Although not stable on his feet, young Thomas seemed to be fairly quick on them, and he announced his new invention – The Yorkshire Mixture!
Founded by Joseph Dobson in 1850, the Elland based company is still run by his direct descendants, and currently has great, great grandaughter Miriam at the helm.
