Darrell Lea – An Australia Icon
Darrell Lea was founded in Sydney by Harry Lea, who started out by making confectionary at the back of his fruit shop on The Corso in Manly. In 1927, he opened a combination milk bar and sweet shop and established the confectionary company, naming it for his youngest son Darrell, who was born that year. The company grew to be the largest privately owned confectionary manufacturer in Australia and was owned by the Lea family until 2012, with Darell Lea stores and shops across the country in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Geelong (this store still remains today). Today, the brand is still locally and family owned since it was purchased by the Quinn family.
Darrell Lea is beloved throughout Australia for its wide range of chocolates, confectionary and liquorice. Two of its most iconic products – Darrell Lea liquorice and rocky road – have also found an appreciative audience overseas, with the liquorice particularly enjoyed in the US, UK and Canada. It certainly received a boost when it was offered as part of dessert at the wedding of Mary Donaldson and the Crown Prince of Denmark!
