Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

**** I like that the writer has used real information from Cadbury and then added their own comments but I would prefer to know when they are making their own comments and when they are quoting from Cadbury. Given the more recent disposal of the beverage division and subsequent takeover by Kraft, much of this can be used to examine the stakeholder concept when Cadbury appeared to only be concerned with the desires of the shareholders rather than the other stakeholders.
