The total number of licenced countries is expanded from ten to 46 and now includes South Africa, Canada, Japan, China and India, amongst others. The agreement also includes the potential to use the full range of Cadbury brands in ambient cake such as Flake, Crunchie, Caramel and Marvellous Creations in addition to Mondelēz International’s Oreo brand.
