Case Study information – Cadbury – China: a developing market

Cadbury is a British firm that is the second largest confectionery company in the world after Mars. The business was established in Birmingham in 1824 by John Cadbury. A chocolate- making factory was built at Bournville in 1879 and the Cadbury World visitor attraction opened alongside it in 1988, followed by a chocolate research centre in 2012. Cadbury’s UK operation is based at Bournville in Birmingham, while the company’s head office is in

Uxbridge, London.

The company has been owned by Mondelez International (previously known as Kraft Foods) since 2010.

In 2010, Kraft Foods announced,

Kraft Foods is looking to double the number of Chinese cities in which it sells Cadbury chocolate within the next two years. The number of cities in China in which Cadbury products are sold would rise to about 40 thanks to the US food group`s distribution network, said Lorna Davis, president and chairman of Kraft`s China operations (Evening Standard, 2010)

Competitor, Nestlé, stated in its 2011 Annual Report,

“The emerging markets are populated by billions of people …We want not just to exploit our own capabilities to share in the development of these countries, but also become a truly local player … and participating in local culinary and nutritional traditions’ (Nestle, 2011).

CIPD assignment is not my cup of tea. That’s the reason I sought out this place suggested by my friend. I would say that the writers of this site are really admiring. I was assigned the best CIPD writer that solved all my issues. He explained to me the difficult topics so well that now I am able to talk on those topics eloquently. I owe my writer a huge thanks and praise! And yes, I would recommend other students as well to come to instaresearch.co.uk for the top CIPD assignment help.
