In 2005, Christine Lantinen acquired the venerable name of candymaker Maud Borup as the foundation for a new kind of treats business. Plymouth-based Maud Borup supplies wholesale sweets and assembles gift baskets for numerous retail clients, including Target, Trader Joe’s, and Macy’s. The company also has developed Eco Eggs, plastic Easter eggs made solely from recycled material.
Covid didn’t slow Lantinen down. Last year, she built a 66,000-square-foot expansion space in Le Center, where Maud Borup has its production facilities. Nine months later, the company ran out of room again. It’s now constructing a 130,000-square-foot addition.
