100 years of Cadbury in Australia

Harvey Deegan

In 2022 Cadbury will celebrate 100 years of operating in Australia. Robert Crawford, Professor of Advertising at RMIT University is currently writing a history of Cadbury in Australia and is hoping to collect stories from chocoholics about their favourite memories – whether its sharing a block of Cadbury Dairy Milk with your best friend or hiding it from your brother, or just having Mum make you a warm cup of Bourneville cocoa before going to bed.

In 1922 when Cadbury decided to expand internationally they chose Claremont in Tasmania as their factory site in 1922 due to its close proximity to the city of Hobart, good source of inexpensive hydro-electricity and plentiful supply of high-quality fresh milk.

To share your memories of Cadbury you can contact Robert on Robert.crawford@rmit.edu.au
