Production transferred to other plants in England and Poland.
In 2008, Monkhill Confectionery, the Own Label trading division of Cadbury Trebor Bassett was sold to Tangerine Confectionery for £58 million cash.
In October 2007, Cadbury announced the closure of the Somerdale Factory, in Keynsham, Somerset, formerly part of Fry's.
Between 500 and 700 jobs were affected by this change.
The management explained that existing plans to move production to Poland were too advanced to be realistically reversed, though assurances had been given regarding sustaining the plant.
Staff at Keynsham criticised this move, suggesting that they felt betrayed and as if they have been "sacked twice".
Cadbury, alongside Rowntree's (now owned by Nestlé) and Fry (now also owned by Mondelez), were the big three British confectionery manufacturers throughout much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Cadbury was a constant constituent of the FTSE 100 on the London Stock Exchange from the index's 1984 inception until the company was bought by Kraft Foods in 2010.
The Hershey Company, based in Pennsylvania, manufactures and distributes Cadbury-branded chocolate (but not its other confectionery) in the United States and has been reported to share Cadbury's "ethos".Cadbury developed the business with his brother Benjamin, followed by his sons Richard and George.George developed the Bournville estate, a model village designed to give the company's workers improved living conditions.Kraft had needed to reach 75% of the shares in order to be able to delist Cadbury from the stock market and fully integrate it as part of Kraft.This was achieved on 5 February 2010, and the company announced that Cadbury shares would be de-listed on 8 March 2010.
