The Bournville plant continues to be the cornerstone of Cadbury’s business – owner

Cadbury’s Bournville Factory: A Global Crown Jewel for Mondelez International’s 200th Anniversary

The Bournville factory remains the “Crown Jewels” of Cadbury, confirmed by its owners as part of their 200th anniversary celebrations. As the chocolate giant’s parent company, Mondeléz International, marks this significant milestone for the brand, managing director Louise Stigant expressed her privilege of being part of such a company with a rich heritage.

Despite a hostile takeover by American firm Kraft in 2010 and subsequent production moving to Poland, Cadbury pledged to maintain production at Bournville. After becoming part of Mondelez International in 2012, Bournville was designated the Global Centre of Excellence for chocolate research and development.

Although there have been job losses at Bournville and some production has moved overseas, Ms. Stigant emphasized that the company has invested £270m in the UK business since taking it over 14 years ago, with Bournville at the forefront of their plans. She described it as a “Crown Jewel” globally, emphasizing its importance within the company.

Despite challenges and changes over the years, Bournville continues to hold a key position in Cadbury’s operations and future plans. The objective is for it to remain the central location and heart of Cadbury.
