Cadbury India can be termed as one of the best performing FMCG companiestoday. Unlike its peer group, which are more of complete foodcompanies.Cadbury is a very niche player with a dominant position in IndianChocolate Confectionery market. This makes it different & more successful incomparison with the peer companies. Now is the period of slowdown in theeconomy, where FMCG companies are the first ones to be hit upon.
