Here's How Brexit Is Going To Affect Your Cadbury Chocolate

While that means change for a host of issues, we’re here to talk about chocolate.   Because of Brexit, Cadbury must raise its prices or shrink the size of its goods, according to Glenn Caton, the president of the northern Europe division of Mondelēz International (a U.S. food and drink corporation that owns Cadbury, which has employees in the U.K.).  In a recent interview with The Guardian, Caton said the company will “put the consumer at the heart and never compromise on quality and taste,” in order to keep the chocolate the same. Already though, Cadbury has raised the prices of its beloved Freddo chocolate frogs by 20 percent, which Mondelēz International attributed to rising commodity costs, the falling value of the pound since the Brexit vote last year and an increase in cocoa prices. There’s also an increasing cost to do business with other countries. “There are obviously challenges and there are three things that we really care about in the context of the Brexit negotiations. First of all is making sure we have a stable and thriving U.K. economy,” Canton said. “If the economy is growing all businesses benefit from that. The second is ensuring that there is no new, more complex regulation and that there is free movement of goods and minimal barriers to trade. Regulation impacts complexity, complexity impacts costs, as do trade barriers and tariffs.”  Fiona Dawson, global president of Mars, recently told the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU that under Brexit, tariffs on chocolate could be as high as 30 percent. That means extremely high prices for consumers.  “The absence of hard borders [in Europe] with all their attendant tariff, customs and non-tariff barriers allows for this integrated supply chain, which helps to keep costs down,” Dawson said, according to BBC. “The return of those barriers would create higher costs which would threaten that supply chain and the jobs that come with it.” Mondelēz International, which also owns Toblerone, already experienced a barrage of criticism back in October, when it announced that it was changing the iconic shape of its chocolate. The company made the triangles on Toblerone bars narrower and widened the gap between peaks. At the time, the company said the high cost of ingredients, not Brexit, was responsible for the change in the chocolate bar’s shape.  Below is a picture comparing the difference in the original bar (top) and what it looks like after the changes:  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Kraft Heinz Withdraws $143 Billion Offer For Unilever, After Warren Buffett Got Cold Feet

Last week's mega-merger announcement, the deliberately leaked acquisition of Unilever by the Warren Buffett-backed Kraft Heinz - a deal which would create a giant consumer goods conglomerate - has fallen apart, following Unilever's adverse reaction to the deal, and speculation that Kraft would not pursue a hostile transaction.  As the FT reports, Kraft Heinz withdrew its $143bn pursuit of consumer products rival Unilever only two days after it publicly confirmed its interest in acquiring the Anglo-Dutch company. The proposed transaction would have been the largest-ever takeover in the food or beverage industry, and would have created a company with combined sales of nearly $85 billion, second only to Swiss giant Nestle. On Friday, the Anglo-Dutch company said that the $50-a-share cash and stock offer, an 18 per cent premium to its closing price on Thursday, from Kraft Heinz “fundamentally undervalues Unilever”. It added: “Unilever rejected the proposal as it sees no merit, either financial or strategic, for Unilever’s shareholders. Unilever does not see the basis for any further discussions.” In a joint statement, Kraft Heinz said it had “amicably agreed to withdraw its proposal for a combination of the two companies.” The companies added: “Unilever and Kraft Heinz hold each other in high regard. Kraft Heinz has the utmost respect for the culture, strategy and leadership of Unilever.” The statement came days after the deal was widely leaked in advance of Friday's confirmation, as we showed on Friday when we demonstrated a surge in Unilever and Kraft call purchases by certain lucky "information arbitrageurs."     It remains to be seen if the SEC has likewise pulled its probe (or ever started one) into who leaked the transaction ahead of time, and who profited. Kraft Heinz said in the statement that its “interest was made public at an extremely early stage. Our intention was to proceed on a friendly basis, but it was made clear Unilever did not wish to pursue a transaction”. It added: “It is best to step away early so both companies can focus on their own independent plans to generate value. We remain focused on driving long-term value while always putting our consumers first.” Why was the deal pulled?  According to the FT, Buffett and 3G’s Jorge Paulo Lemann "decided on Sunday morning to withdraw their approach for Unilever after they concluded that a protracted public battle to take over Unilever would have caused more damage than good to Kraft Heinz, said two people close to the talks." Mr Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and Mr Lemann’s 3G Capital control just under 50 per cent of Kraft Heinz shares. The duo, who would have contributed significant new capital to fund the deal, were also spooked by the hostile response from UK politicians who raised concerns about another large British-based company being acquired by a foreign group in the aftermath of Brexit, said one of these people. The FT also notes that the early leaking of Kraft’s interest in Unilever (not just per call option acticity but thanks to a report on the FT's own Alphaville blog) made it hard for the US company to negotiate a deal that would have been more attractive for both sides. “Kraft Heinz was ready to make a lot of concessions, including taking on the Unilever name, to make this deal happen but unfortunately it leaked to early and that made it hard negotiate,” said one person close to 3G Capital. A deal would have brought together the company behind Kraft Mac & Cheese and Heinz Tomato Ketchup with the maker of Dove soap, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Unilever shares jumped 13% to close Friday at a record 44.80 euros in Amsterdam, while Kraft Heinz, based in Pittsburgh and Chicago, also surged 11% to a record in New York trading. US stock markets are closed on Monday.

Get Your Resume Ready: There's A Job Opening For 'Chocolate Taster'

Chocolate lovers, your dream job has arrived.  Mondelez International ― owner of tasty treats including Cadbury and Oreo ― is looking to hire a “chocolate taster” to test out the company’s products. But there’s a catch. It’s a part-time gig... Oh, and you’d have to move to Reading, England. And you’d have to work out of the company’s Reading Science Centre, which probably doesn’t look like this:  Still, if you’re in the area and are available to eat chocolate from 12:15-2:45 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the job sounds pretty sweet. The first item listed under “key responsibilities” is “be able to taste chocolate and cocoa beverage products and give objective and honest feedback.”  Should they hire you, you’d be working with a team of 11 other tasters and a leader to “share opinions and collaborate to reach an agreement on taste.” The main qualification appears to be “a passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection.” But they also want honesty, eagerness, a communicative personality and a “firm grasp of English.”  If you think you have what it takes, you can read the rest of the requirements and apply right here. Just be sure to share all that chocolate. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Оригинальный McDonald’s

Я мало бываю в других странах и уж тем более не хожу там по Макдональдсам (кстати, намекают, что в пунктах фаст-фуда гамбургеры делают из розовой слизи). По этому чисто из теоретических соображений мне казалось, что фишка этой сети питания в том, что как раз таки во всех странах продают одни и те же блюда и изделия знакомые каждому по вкусу и названию. Ну типа того, как приезжает турист в другую страну, не понимает что тут вообще едят и какой у чего вкус, а вот в Макдональдсе он узнает свою еду и купит ее. Разве я не прав?Просто оказывается почти во всех странах, где есть Макдональдс в меню есть блюда, которые продаются только в этой стране и больше таких нигде не найти. Наверное их не такой большой процент от общего списка и в общем то моя мысль верна, но все же посмотрите на них.Что бы вы попробовали?Пользователи Buzzfeed составили свой список самых вкусных и необычных пунктов меню этой популярной сети фастфуда.Фото 2.Италия: Свити с «Нутеллой» (Sweety con Nutella)Свити с «Нутеллой» — это просто бургер со знаменитой шоколадно-ореховой пастой, вот и все.

Toblerone maker to hike price of Cadbury's Freddo bars

Food conglomerate Mondelēz to raise cost of tiny chocolate frog by 20% with more Cadbury bars also likely to rise in priceThe company which cut the weight of Toblerone bars by widening the gaps between the chocolate peaks is now slapping a 20% price rise on Cadbury’s Freddo bars.

The US food manufacturing giant Mondelēz, which owns Cadbury, said it was having to make selective price increases as a “last resort”. The firm made a better than expected profit of $548m (£448m) in its last three-month financial period. Continue reading...

Cadbury Roses fans get in a Christmas twist over wrapper changes

For some, company’s tinkering with wrapping, weight and even shape of festive favourite has just added to misery of 2016For many sweet-toothed Britons, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a tub of Cadbury Roses chocolates to dip into over the festive period. But fans have expressed horror at the discovery that company has changed the wrappers from sweetie-style twist-wraps to uniform “flow wraps” that have to be torn, rather than twisted, open. Some consumers went as far as accusing Cadbury of, in keeping with the theme of 2016, ruining – well, pretty much everything. Mike Barker tweeted: Continue reading...
