Synopsis

Described by the Financial Times as 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for grown-ups', The Trebor Story explores how Trebor became Britain's biggest sugar confectioner, loved for sweets like Extra Strong Mints, Black Jacks and Sharps Toffees. With over 300 photos, this tale of plucky entrepreneurs will absorb those interested in sweets, London's old East End, product design, and the rise and fall of Britain's great family-run industries.

As Lucy Kellaway in the FT continued, 'Unlike a packet of sweets, a business book usually holds no such promise of pleasure. But The Trebor Story is different ... Inside are treats for all -- nostalgia freaks, social historians, machinery nerds, and anyone interested in marketing, manufacturing.'

Also available by Matthew Crampton: Tales from the Angler's Retreat
