  • The Full See’s Candies Story: People & Product: The story of See's Candies. See's was one of the early investments made by Warren Buffett. “Buying See’s Candies was not only a good investment for us, it was a positive learning experience. We discovered that we had purchased a company that held itself to a high standard of business ethics – product quality, service integrity, and the right sort of relationships with employees and suppliers. See’s Candies became our model for investment in other quality companies… [See’s was] a company that taught us early a vital lesson about the way to do business.” – Warren Buffett.
