Candle Connection was established in 1999 in order to fill a huge void in the Egyptian candle market. At that time, the only candles available were basic tealights, birthday candles and tapers.
We began supplying hotels, restaurants and event planners with the basics...pillars, hollow candles and glass filled candles. As our business grew, we continued to add more products in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as keeping up with color trends. Brass, wood, metal and most recently, blown glass accessories have been added to compliment and dress up our candles.
Corporate giveaways and private label are now a significant part of our portfolio, which continues to increase annually. We hope to expand internationally by gaining the trust and credibility with international buyers.

Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansThere is no waste when it comes to our candles. Any damages, defects or excess candles are melted and poured again into molds and containers. Any dirty wax that may fall on the floor is gathered and sold to companies that repurpose it for their needs. For example, we have a shoe polish company that purchases all dirty, unusable wax. Another company used the wax for their equipment.Sustainability initiativesMany of the hotels will return the melted, unusable candles. We issue credit for each kilo returned. We take this wax, filter it and use it for the very dark colors such as black and navy.Pledges for the yearWe hope to continue being as sustainable as possible and to continue with sustainable materials.Social equity at your companyOur employees are paid well above the minimum wage and those on salary are compensated very well. Their medical bills are paid by the company and we provide transportation to and from work. Most factory workers in Egypt have 1 day off, whereas we give them 2 days off.
