Northern Irish label that released some notable Irish singles including those by Clive Culbertson and The Singles, as well as a lot of showband stuff that'd kill your average KBD collector. It also licensed a number of soul singles from small US labels.

The label changed from green to blue around 1980 but kept the familiar wrapped sweet logo. This changed to the block MINT logo with the 'i' beneath the centre hold by the mid-80s. Picture sleeves on some releases do exist but they are not common.

Initially marketed by President Records.
