The Mint itself may be clear But the future of the Leicester factory is not.

The Mint itself may be clear. But the future for the Leicester factory is not.


The factory that makes Fox's Glacier mints could close under merger plans.


Glacier mints have been made here in Leicester since 1918.


Big Bear Confectionery, which celebrated its 100th anniversary last year, is also behind other brands, including Poppets, XXX mints and Just Brazils.


A spokeswoman for Big Bear and Tangerine Confectionery, both owned by Valeo Foods Group, said employees and trade unions had been informed.


The consultation period is expected to last until the end of April.
