Sweet maker sends new type of treat to Okinawa

UK-Japan News August 2017

Scottish confectionary firm Thomas Tunnock Limited is shipping a new product to Japan as part of a renewed bid to crack the market, the Daily Record reported on 17 July.

The firm is now pinning its hopes on the chocolate wafer cream after Japanese consumers did not take to the caramel wafer due to its sticky texture.

The firm shipped a 22-tonne container to Okinawa in June, and had arranged further deliveries for September and December.
