Such sweet sorrow

Receivers have been called in at Meltis plc, best known as the makers of New Berry Fruits. Accountancy firm KPMG warned they could not be optimistic about saving the company, which employs 310 staff at a factory in Bedford making New Berry Fruits, crystallised fruit and Turkish delight. Stephen James, one of the two receivers, said: "Meltis is clearly a famous and evocative name - I gave my mother boxes of New Berry Fruits on special occasions."
