Accounting Level 2 and Level 3 students enjoyed a trip to Cadbury World on 9th Feb 2023 as an enrichment activity.
Students got a unique insight into how Cadbury utilise production, inventory, and marketing planning tools.
The group undertook a self-guided tour to delve into the company’s fascinating history, discovering how the nation’s favourite chocolate was born and John Cadbury’s early struggles to establish the business. They also heard how the Cadbury family built a new and better factory, in Bournville and enjoyed a quiz while there.
The Cadbury world experience travelled 1000 years back in time to Mexico where the group walked through the tropical rainforest of the Mayan Indians to discover the origins of the cocoa bean, deep in the ancient tropical rainforest. But be warned - Aztec Emperor Montezuma is very protective of his cocoa! The students discovered how the cocoa tree was central to their culture.
