In addition to the special edition centenary package designs, Cadbury announced that to mark 100 years, the shelves of Australia's leading retailers will be stocked with new products throughout 2022.

Cadbury Australia

After its merger in 1922 with Fry and Sons, Cadbury decides to expand to other borders, choosing Australia as one of the company's largest export markets.

Tasmania was chosen for its cool climate, availability of high-quality dairy production and supply. The new headquarters building was inspired by the Cadbury facility in Bournville, England.

Still using the 60+ year old pure granite 'conching' machines, this factory was a major Tasmanian tourist attraction until 2015.

In addition, products made include all major Cadbury brand chocolate bars (including Cherry Ripe and Crunchie) and blocks (Dairy Milk, Marvelous Creations and Old Gold), as well as classic chocolate confections (such as Freddo Frog and Caramel).

According to data from Cadbury, 90% of Australian households prefer this brand of chocolate; while its production reaches 60.000 tons of chocolate each year, or more than 200 million blocks of chocolate, which is destined both for local consumption and for export.
