Example text

Although it had been prompted by competitive pressure from abroad, the willingness to forget past glories and move on was decisive. But its importance would soon be masked by the other new product that allegedly bumped Bournville Cocoa from being launched in 1905. What could have been an interesting, but niche opportunity would turn out to be the brand that would take over the mantle of defining the Cadbury name from Cocoa Essence, but in a way that was much more transferable to the rest of the product portfolio: Cadbury’s Dairy Milk.

The question was asked as to why the Food and Drugs Act could not be forcefully applied to drive Van Houten’s cocoa from the market. 5 to 4%) would have no impact whatsoever on the food value of the cocoa nor on the health of its drinker. In short, a great deal that had been inferred against alkali by Cadbury could not be supported. Another school of thought was that direct competitor-bashing was both wasteful and a diversion from the real opportunity. Figures were presented showing that, even after a six-fold increase in Cocoa Essence sales in the last two decades of the 19th-century, only one family in 32 were drinking Cocoa Essence.

More difficult to accept was that purity itself might no longer be as potent a selling point. Cadbury stood unequivocally for purity, and thirty years of increasingly massive advertising budgets had been sunk into this one thought. A volte-face on this issue was unthinkable, but it could not be argued that the communication strategy that had put purity at the top of the decision tree was being found wanting in trying to convince the public that Van Houten’s superiortasting product was in fact inferior.
