“Cadbury was founded almost 200 years ago. Delve into the fascinating history and you’ll find a wealth of interesting facts on subjects including advertising, Cadbury family, past and present products and philanthropy.
In 1875, a Swiss manufacturer called Daniel Peter added milk to his recipe to make the first milk chocolate bar.
This wasn’t a completely new idea; Cadbury produced their milk chocolate drink based on Sir Hans Sloane’s recipe between 1849 and 1875. And Cadbury added their own milk chocolate bars in 1897. But Daniel Peter was still way ahead of them – using condensed milk rather than powdered milk to produce a chocolate with a superior taste and texture. Another Swiss manufacturer invented the conching machine in 1879. This refined chocolate, giving it the smooth texture we know today. Swiss milk chocolate dominated the British market – a situation the Cadbury family set out to challenge in the 20th Century.”
