The company behind Australia’s first single origin chocolate says the country’s cocoa is rich in polyphenols and is set for a big future. Its executive chairman, Cadbury veteran Barry Kitchen talks to ConfectioneryNews.
This week, demand for polyols is reported as experiencing
substantial growth on the back of health trend, Cargill provides
more convenient cocoa packaging, and Cadbury Schweppes moves nearer
to its beverage-arm demerger.
The Australian arm of Cadbury Schweppes, has lost another round in
its bid to protect the use of its characteristic colour purple,
used in wrapping for many of the company's confectionery products
and for advertising purposes.
Cadbury Schweppes yesterday filed regulatory documents outlining
the demerger of its Americas beverage business into a new
company, revealing the company's strategy to maintain its position
as the world's largest confectionery...
International firms such as Cadbury are the most successful
confectionery companies in Western Europe, according to
Euromonitor, suggesting that a global outlook is necessary to
survive in an increasingly competitive market.
The Cadbury Schweppes drive to boost margins is full steam
ahead, boosted by the demerger of an underperforming drinks
arm, as the company today announced confectionery
revenues grew by ten per cent over the third quarter.
