Our Darrell Lea range comprises over 350 regular items, covering a wide range of confectionary types and an additional 150 seasonal lines (Easter, Christmas etc). The Ricci range comprises a further 100 items. The majority of products are made in our manufacturing facility in Kogarah in southern Sydney. A small percentage of products are sourced from other manufacturers, so that we can have a complete range for our consumers and shoppers.
