About us

Karamel Kompagniet A/S was founded by Anna Knightbridge in 2004 on Bornholm, with an aim to make the worlds best handmade gourmet caramels, based on the Knightbridge family recipe from 1892. We are now an industry leader within the high end caramel universe and continue to have a sharp focus on defining the standards for our gourmet niche.

Our core value is presence - presence in every aspect of manufacturing our caramels and presence in the way we act as colleagues. Our aim is to give presence to our customers as well - to create a space for mindfullnes, for relations, for a tech-break - when our caramels are enjoyed.

Anna’s English grandmother and her homemade caramels

Idyllic Winchester with its narrow alleys and winding river is one of England’s most magical cities. This is where King Arthur’s round table is found, where the earliest English kings are buried in the old cathedral, side by side with the author of Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen - and where the foundation for Karamel Kompagniet was laid many decades ago.

Anna’s grandparents lived in London before they moved to Winchester. Anna’s mother was a child during World War II in the English capital. She can still remember the games they played in the rubble of the collapsed buildings and the
dump blasts from exploding bombs that could be felt even down on the station platforms deep underground, where people sought shelter. One of the few joys for the little girl during that time was the homemade toffees, her mother - Anna’s grandmother - could conjure up.

When the Knightbridge family moved to Winchester after the war, grandmother’s old book with its toffee recipes, improved and adjusted with her neat handwriting in the margins, came with them. Grandmother Knightbridge’s homemade toffees were always one of the highlights for Anna, when she left Denmark to visit her english family as a child. Anna remembers how the sugar mixture was heated over an open fire and how the sweet smell lingered in the air in the entire house.

The taste was exquisite, almost magical and this is what Anna Knightbridge aimed to recreate when she started Karamel Kompagniet years later on Bornholm. Within just a few years the handmade caramels where found in the leading stores all over Denmark and Karamel Kompagniet secured the position as industry leader within gourmet caramels.

We keep on developing our business and our products - always with presence and heart.
