With a history stretching back over 200 years, today Cadbury Schweppes employs over 55,000 people and our products are available in over 200 countries across the world.

The Cadbury's company could also use surveys to find out quantitative information about what people really wanted from chocolate such as a new flavour therefore boosting sales. Cadbury's could also find out quantitative information by looking at the company's accounts. 4.1 The information could be reported to the management at Cadbury through many different means of communication. The information could be sent by post or even e-mail in a report style document, by fax, by video conferencing, by memo or even on the phone.
