Exiled in Toronto Posted February 2, 2010 Share Posted February 2, 2010 Today Kraft Foods gained acceptances from 71% of Cadbury shareholders for their offer, meaning they own the company. A great British icon is now being run from Illinois, along with Dairylea, Miracle Whip, Cheese Whiz and other such delicacies. Do any of you care one way or the other? I must confess to having a personal agenda for asking. I joined Cadbury's straight out of university and worked for them for 24 years in the UK and then Canada before taking a well-earned package and early pension a couple of years ago. In 2008, I had published a book detailing their rich an illustrious history - Cadbury's Purple Reign. Because of that, in 2 weeks time I am doing a presentation to Kraft's global head of marketing plus assorted lackeys on what Cadbury means. I would appreciate any feelings one way or the other as, living in Canada, I am somewhat out of touch with what the man on the Clapham Omnibus thinks these days (or indeed, the man on the no8 bus to Darwen, if that still runs) Many thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
