Hall and Thomas H. Hall founded the business in 1893 to produce soap and jams, but ventured into the confectionery market in 1918 when their premises moved to Whitefield. . The company began manufacturing Halls Mentholyptus in 1927, made from a blend of menthol and eucalyptus oil. This humble sweet became the world’s best known and best-selling cough drop, and helped the company float on the stock market for the first time in 1953, a year before sweet rationing came to an end in the UK. The company was not without its challenges in the post-war years. Sugar shortages and supply problems with menthol crystals and eucalyptus oil from China, Brazil and Spain meant that the average weekly production had dropped from 800 tonnes a week to just 80 tonnes a week. However, by the mid-1960’s, Hall’s products accounted for about a third of the entire UK market for medicated sweets. Innovations included cough drops with a liquid centre, sugar free cough drops and menthol-free sweets.
