On 16th December the Year 11 Business & Economics classes went on a visit to Cadbury World to find out what type of business Cadbury is, its history and about its recent takeover by Mondeléz International. We were also shown part of the Cadbury factory – learning how they make, decorate and package chocolate, ready to be sold.
The visit was educational as we learned about production in a large company which linked in to our Business lessons. We also learned about the humble beginnings of the company and the many advertising campaigns they’ve used over the years. However the visit was also fun, with a 4D cinema experience, singers outside the factory and, of course, lots of chocolate.
