For nearly 200 years, since John Cadbury opened a grocer’s shop in Birmingham in 1824, Cadbury has been the nation’s favourite chocolate bar. Recently voted Brand of the Year 2019*, Cadbury has a wide range of well-loved delicious chocolate that reminds the nation that there is a ‘Glass and a Half’ of generosity in everyone. The brand’s success is built upon its deep understanding of customers, shoppers and the category, ensuring it continues to evolve to remain relevant. The health and wellbeing of consumers is hugely important and so through BeTreatwise aims to remind people that treats are special, to be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced lifestyle. Portion control and consumer education, through on pack labelling, have a huge part to play in Cadbury’s strategy to ‘inspire mindful snacking’. The brand recently announced its plans to bring all Cadbury products predominantly purchased by parents for children, under 100 calories. As well as this, reduced sugar innovations such as Cadbury Dairy Milk 30% Less help consumers manage their sugar intake. 100% of the cocoa in Cadbury’s chocolate is sustainably sourced through the company’s industry leading Cocoa Life programme, which supports sustainable cocoa farming. This helps secure a positive future for farmers, their families and their communities.
