Dairy Milk, one of Cadbury's chocolate bars and the best selling chocolate bar in Britain, will become Fair Trade certified in the UK this summer. This committment by Cadbury will greatly nearly triple (up to 15,000 tons) the amount of Fair Trade cocoa sourced from Ghana bought by UK companies. In order to receive Fair Trade certification from the Fairtrade Foundation (the UK branch of the Fair Trade Labeling Organization) Cadbury had to commit to buying cocoa at a guaranteed minimum price even if the open market price falls below it.

Over a million Cadbury Schweppes chocolate bars were recalled in the UK after the Health Protection Agency (HPA) found a rare salmonella strain in its products. A HPA investigation found that 37 of 56 salmonella cases reported between March and July were linked to Cadbury products. Products being taken off the shelves include Cadbury Dairy Milk Turkish 250g, Dairy Milk Caramel 250g, Dairy Milk Mint 250g, Dairy Milk Eight Chunk and Dairy Milk 1kg. The contamination was attributed to a leaking pipe at Cadbury’s Marlbrook plant, near Leominster in Herefordshire. Cadbury Schweppes estimated that the cost of the recall will amount to $20 million by the end of this year.
