Mondelēz International has officially opened a new state-of-the-art production line at its chocolate factory at Bourville, the home of Cadbury in Birmingham. The new facility has been installed as part of a £75 million investment in Bournville by Mondelēz International to make its Cadbury Roses and Heroes assortments and Cadbury Dairy Milk bars. Announced by the company last year, it secures the next generation of chocolate manufacturing at the site.

The new line was opened by British Business Secretary Sajid Javid (pictured centre). During his visit the Business Secretary got a taste for the business by touring the production line. He also visited a new training facility and met apprentices and staff.

Mary Barnard (pictured left), President of Northern Europe at Mondelēz International, says: “We were delighted to welcome the Secretary of State to Bournville to officially open the first of our new state-of-the-art manufacturing lines. This marks an important milestone in our journey to secure the next generation of manufacturing at this iconic site.”

We welcomed the opportunity for Mr Javid to visit our new training facility and meet with apprentices and operators to hear first-hand about the new skills, knowledge and qualifications they are gaining.”

Mondelēz employs more than 4,000 people in the UK across nine sites, including five manufacturing sites, a Global Centre of Excellence for Chocolate Research and Development in Bournville, and Global Science Centre in Reading.

Food and drink is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK. It has a turnover of £95.4 billion and employs about 400,000 people – more than the population of Leicester.
