Elmer Candy

About Elmer Candy

Elmer Candy Corporation, established in 1855, is one of the most successful chocolatiers in the United States. Its sweet confections, primarily boxed chocolates, are sold at retailers across the country, including Walmart, Costco, Kroger, and Target. If you’ve purchased chocolates for Valentine’s Day, Christmas or another holiday, you’ve most likely picked up a box from Elmer Candy. To meet the high holiday demand, Elmer Candy must accurately forecast sales, ensure its supplies of raw ingredients, and efficiently craft, package, and distribute its goods.
