Meet the Team


Meet Tom, the man behind the Finest Fudge Co. Tom always grew up with a sweet tooth and loved baking. He originally started selling fudge as a hobby that gave him the perfect excuse to travel the country with his cousins. Fast forward a few years and he’s now hand-crafting his own delicious range of fudge from a unit in Clitheroe, selling it online, in store and at markets right across the UK.

Tom’s favourite fudge is Mars and Malteser and would recommend it without hesitation to anyone who’s not sure which flavour to go for.


Meet Mariah, the Queen of TikTok and all round boss lady. Mariah oversees everything at the Finest Fudge Co, from hand crafting our delicious fudges to travelling across the UK attending various food festivals. Mariah is originally from Coventry and has a degree in Psychology, but since meeting Tom, she moved up North and is now a huge part of the Finest Fudge Co.

When asked about her favourite fudge, she says she loves them all but Salted Caramel is a hands down favourite of hers. 

Alan (The Captain)

Meet Alan, chief brew maker and lover of cars, DIY and football. Alan’s nickname is The Captain as he oversees pretty much everything here at The Finest Fudge Co. Recently retired as Chief Engineer for Shell, Alan now spends his days in charge of his pride and joy (the coffee machine), telling stories from his younger years and making ice creams!

When asked what his favourite fudge is from the Finest Fudge Co collection, he said it’s a close tie between Vanilla and Rum & Raisin. According to Alan you can never ever go wrong with plain and simple Vanilla, but the Rum & Raisin fudge offers a boozy twist that just hits the spot everytime.


Meet Nin, the Queen of Finest Fudge Co. Grandma to Tom and wife to Alan, Nin is a living legend who’s favourite activities include enjoying a glass of Vino and playing with Percy, her Chihuahua. Nin’s day to day roles at the Finest Fudge Co include being ultra glamorous, giving the best pep talks and helping out at pop ups.

True to her love of alcohol, Nin’s favourite fudge from the Finest Fudge Co collection is Pineapple & Malibu, claiming it tastes just like a tropical holiday. 


Meet Beth, the friendly face of our Great Harwood boutique shop. Beth has lived in Great Harwood her whole life and always offers our customers a fabulous service with a smile. Beth is the truffle queen and proudly handmakes them all herself, if you’ve not already tried them, we strongly recommend calling in and treating yourself.

Beth’s favourite fudge is Chocolate Orange, claiming that you simply can’t beat the combination of iconic Terry’s Chocolate Orange with the signature creamy taste of the Finest Fudge Co fudge.
