WHO WE AREdavidmilnes

A Family Business

We are a home-based, family-run business specialising in the manufacture of hand made butter fudge in a variety of unique flavours. Located in Ballycarry, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, close to the world famous Glens of Antrim, our fudge has been enjoyed by the folk of Antrim for many generations.  Whether you’re hosting a wedding reception, corporate event, or just needing a treat, Eleanor Craig’s Homemade Butter fudge is the perfect treat for any occasion.


Our Success

Recognition for the success of our fudge business has not been restricted to the folk of Antrim: we receive many compliments from our loyal customer base. In September 2009 our business was shortlisted in the Belfast Media’s Group TOP 50 businesses in N. Ireland. This prestigious event was hosted in the Stormont buildings, Belfast – it was an honour to be recognised and nominated as one of the top 50 businesses in Belfast.

We also featured in the recent ‘Business In The Community’ awards hosted at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast, June 2011. We were privileged to be one of the companies featured in the video sound-bite for the event.

We were also awarded by the Larne Borough Council as highly commended young entrepreneur of the year 2012.


Our Recipe

The recipe for our butter fudge has been in the family for many generations. It has never been altered, nor changed in any way from one generation to the next – it never had to be!  The secret to Eleanor Craig’s delicious fudge lies within the subtle blend of traditional, quality ingredients brought together in a closely guarded secret recipe.

Why not try the secret for yourself?

Even UTV’s ‘Lesser Spotted Ulster’ presenter, Joe Mahon, could not extract the secret of the fudge from the family during a televised episode of the program on 9th November 2006.
