The firm produces Tic Tac sweets, and the figures show that the number of people employed last year decreased from 245 to 241. Ferrero has produced the global brand of Tic Tacs - which is available in more than 100 countries - since 1969.

The firm's profits take account of non-cash depreciation costs of €3.5m.
