Oatfield Sweets began as a wholesale and retail outlet on the Port Road in Letterkenny, Donegal and thus began the creation of many iconic sweet brands of our time including Emeralds, Colleen, Glucose Barley, Mint Humbugs.
In 2012, the owners of Oatfield Sweets, Zed Candy, decided to close the Letterkenny factory on May 27th with production being switched to England. The move sees 17 workers lose their jobs and will bring an end to one of Co Donegal’s most famous firms. At the height of its production, Oatfield employed 85 workers and produced sweets such as Orange Chocolates and Irish Butter Toffee.
