Confectionery refers to chocolate, sugar confectionery and gum products (BMI 2010).
BMI (2010) reports the confectionery sector to be only fifth with 4.5% of total food and drink industry production, after meat and poultry processing (26%), dairy industry (13%), bread and baked goods (11%) and alcoholic beverages (7.8%).
Sugar confectionery includes hard boiled sweets, mints, jellies and medicated sweets (BMI 2010).
See Knetter (1989) for the details of the derivation.
The choice of thresholds is explained in Section 5.
