Merger could close Fox's mints factory in Leicester

The factory that makes Fox's Glacier mints could close under merger plans.
It is proposed Fox's Glacier owner Big Bear Confectionery would merge with Tangerine Confectionery.
The move would close the Big Bear site in Leicester, where over 200 people are employed, and create a combined UK head office in Pontefract and Blackpool.
Tangerine Confectionery said a consultation with staff and unions was under way, but it could not confirm how many jobs might be at risk.
