DPS are pleased to welcome Thorntons as a customer after their purchase of LogiX.

Thorntons is a British chocolate company established by Joseph William Thornton in 1911.

The very first shop was opened in Sheffield by Joseph William Thornton, who handed the keys to his teenage sons Norman and Stanley. Over the next few years, as Thorntons got a name for itself, they created a uniquely rich and chewy ‘special’ toffee, that became so popular it became the fuel of the city’s steelworkers. And later, just after the Second World War, they hired one of Europe’s finest chocolatiers, Walter Willem, to bring Europe’s finest soft-centred chocolates to the UK and created Continental.
