Cadbury's as we know it today started from humble beginnings in Bull Street,Birmingham. A shop was opened by John Cadbury in 1824. It did not start as aconfectionery shop but sold tea and coffee and homemade drinking chocolate or cocoawhich he made himself for his customers.In those days cocoa and chocolate was a luxury and affordable by only the wealthy.John's experiments with chocolate and an aggressive marketing campaign soon madehim a leading trader in Birmingham. The shop prospered and became more and morepopular.John Cadbury moved into the manufacturing of drinking chocolate and cocoa. By theearly 1840's Cadbury operated from a factory in Bridge Street and went into partnershipwith his brother Benjamin. 'Cadbury Brothers of Birmingham' was now operational andthe chocolate industry was given a much needed boost in the 1850's when thegovernment reduced the high import taxes on cocoa. Chocolate was now within reach ofthe masses. Cadbury's received a Royal Warrant in 1854 as manufacturers of chocolatefor Queen Victoria.
