Industries of Bury St Edmunds – I think most of Bury must have worked at Van Melle at some time. My mum, me and my sister did.
I started in the factory then the office. We all used to buy the big bags at the end of the week and give them to our friends. The worst day was when you walked up the hill and the smell would hit you like a disgusting gassy smell. It was a fruit called Durian I think that’s how you spell it. That was probably the only sweet that nobody ate.
