TRIP TO CADBURY WORLD
What do Mexico, Ghana and Birmingham have in common? Prince Henry’s Geographers discovered this term that these are all places that play a role in the chocolate industry. Year 9 students set out to discover how Cadbury’s has grown to become a global business and how Geography affects its supply chains around the world. The students began their trip by hunting for clues about where cocoa beans can be grown and how Cadbury’s is trying to ensure they have a sustainable supply for the future. The students took a tour around the site and traced the route that a chocolate bar takes from farm to shelf. In addition to seeing how Cadbury’s supports its farmers with fair trade, students also learnt about the history of the Cadbury family and some of the innovative work practices they introduced and how we can still see their influence today on the surrounding Bournville area of Birmingham.
