John Cadbury, a young Quaker, was the first to begin Candbury Chocolates. He opened the first shop in 1824 in Birmingham, UK. Originally, Cadbury's was focused on trading tea and coffee. Then it spread into cocoa beverages and eventually into the chocolate business.

John Cadbury invented Cadbury chocolate. He was born on the 12th of August 1801 and passed away on the 11th of May 1889. The founding of the buisness started in 1831 when John first made cocoa products on a factory scale in an old malthouse in Crooked Lane, Birmingham in England.

John Cadbury retired in 1861, handing over the buisness to his eldest sons Richard and George. It is to their leadership that the success of the enterprise is owed as the company grew.

Today, the company has developed with new building methods and chocolates being carried out. Cadbury is sold over the world and the most favourite chocolate is Dairy Milk, while the most favourite assortment is the Cadbury Roses.
