Confectionery manufacturer Glisten has bought chocolate manufacturer Sunya - part of the Renshaw Scott group - for £750,000.

Sunya’s confectionery includes foiled and netted chocolate balls and seasonal products for the retail sector and gift trade.

Glisten said the Sunya deal would provide a number of “additional cross-selling opportunities as most of its customers and product capabilities are new to Glisten”.

For the year ended June 30 Sunya had sales of £1.8m.
