Cadbury

Like most things nowadays, Cadbury is no longer what it seems to be. So many companies have been taken over by the US giants both here and in the UK, and it really pisses me off!

Yes, it's owned by Mondel─ôz International, Inc., an American multinational confectionery, food and beverage conglomerate, employing around 100,000 people around the world. It comprises the global snacking and food brands of the former Kraft Foods.

Cadbury and Milka chocolate, Jacobs coffee, Toblerone, Nabisco and Oreo cookies, Lu, Tang powdered beverages and Trident gums all add to the Mondel─ôz International annual revenue of approximately $36 billion and operations in more than 80 countries.

I found out recently that our Aussie paint company "Wattyl" is no longer ours it's also American owned!! That's why you can't buy it at Bunnings any longer, only at the part American owned Masters.
