In 1857, Daniel Peter, a Swiss Manufacturer, added milk to his recipe to create the world’s first milk chocolate.However, the first Cadbury milk chocolate bar didn’t hit shelves until 1897.
Cadbury is internationally headquartered in Uxbridge, west London, and operates in more than fifty countries worldwide.
It is famous for its Dairy Milk chocolate, the Creme Egg and Roses selection box, and many other confectionery products.
As the Cadbury family were Quakers there were no pubs in the estate.
Cadbury was the first chocolatier to create milk chocolate.
Cadbury, alongside Rowntree's and Fry, were the big three British confectionery manufacturers throughout much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With the development of the Birmingham West Suburban Railway along the path of the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, they acquired the Bournbrook estate, comprising 14.5 acres (5.9 ha) of countryside 5 miles (8.0 km) south of the outskirts of Birmingham.
Located next to the Stirchley Street railway station, which itself was opposite the canal, they renamed the estate Bournville and opened the Bournville factory the following year.
One of the best-known British brands, in 2013 The Daily Telegraph named Cadbury among Britain's most successful exports.
Cadbury was established in Birmingham, England in 1824, by John Cadbury who sold tea, coffee and drinking chocolate.
The company found that it was a much more suited, rounded name than the previous "Cadbury's". In October 2007, Cadbury announced the closure of the Somerdale Factory, Keynsham, formerly part of Fry's.
