Funtom Corporation (ファントム社, Fantomu sha) is an immensely popular[1] company owned by Ciel Phantomhive and not only the leading confection and toy manifacturer in Great Britain,[2][3] but in the entire world.[4]

The company headquarters are located in 101 Brompton, London.[5][6]

Overview

Funtom Corporation is a prosperous enterprise, strongly supported by the wealthy and bourgeoisie. When Funtom Corporation was first brought attention to, its size[7] and reputation swiftly grew, and it became greatly distinguished in a little under three years.[3] Its factories are located all over England; one of them is in Yorkshire.[8]

Funtom Corporation specializes in original novelties reportedly unseen before by other classes.[3] Its products, ranging from candies to toys, are especially enrapturing to children.[9] Harold West Jeb had dubbed it "the candy king."[10]

Aside from confections and toys, Funtom Corporation also at least some ventures in cosmetics as well, namely perfume.

After winning a Royal Warrant at the Curry Fair in December 1888, Funtom Corporation has opened up a food branch, the branch's main product being the curry bun invented by Sebastian Michaelis.[11]

Recently, Ciel has been in talks with the Roze Diamond Company to start a jewelry venture together.
