Welcome to Carobana Carob Confectionery
The Home of Delicious Carob Confectionery
We’ve been creating our exciting range of Carob confectionery since 1982. We’re based in Korora, a few kilometres north of Coffs Harbour. As the Coffs Coast leading confectionery suppliers, we’ve developed a popular range of Carob confectionery that’s both super tasty and healthier than other traditional treats. For instance, our fab Carob coated range includes Carob coated banana, Rocky Road, coconut rough, rum and raisin fudge, ginger, honeycomb and nut brittles. We also have soy, uncoated, and no added sugar options. Furthermore, our delicious range is available wholesale, retail (from our very own shop) and online. So, if you’re looking for confectionery suppliers who combine taste, quality, and health all into one fantastic range, then contact Carobana Carob Confectionery today.
What’s it all about?
The Carob tree goes back a long way. In fact, it’s been cultivated for over 4000 years. Carob originated in Eastern Europe and was well known by the ancient Greeks. Carob trees produce large brown pods, and, once dried, it’s these that we use to create a healthy cocoa substitute. The benefits of Carob over traditional chocolate are many. First, it’s lower in fat and sugar and therefore lower in calories. Secondly, it’s caffeine-free and doesn’t contain oxalic acid that can interfere with calcium absorption. Lastly, Carob is rich in vitamins A and B, minerals, fibre and protein. Ultimately, these marvellous properties make Carob products very popular in health food stores throughout Australia.

From the Owner
Ian Hamey and his wife Jean are the Founders and Owners of Carobana Carob Confectionery. They are still very much involved with the business and love to meet new visitors to the property.
“We started out by drying bananas from our plantation back in the late ’70s. We soon realised that we had a unique healthy treat to offer by coating the bananas in Carob (hence the name Carobana). We’ve expanded our range over the years, and we love being involved with the ideas, the production techniques and machinery, and the wonderful folks that come here to enjoy this beautiful part of the world.” Ian Hamey.
