However, Slatterys has various advantages over Cadburys, such as, Slatterys chocolate is much healthier than Cadburys because the chocolate at Slatterys is made from cocoa beans and butter, unlike Cadbury's chocolate which is made from vegetable fat. Also, another advantage Slatterys has over Cadburys is the fact that the customer can have the chocolate customized to exactly how they like, unlike Cadburys who can't. Other Competitors As well as being a chocolatier, Slatterys also has a caf� were customers can enjoy a variety of refreshments such as: cakes, tea or coffee. However, the area that Slatterys is located in, Slatterys isn't the only caf� business. There are also quite a few other caf� businesses in the Whitefield area, due to this Slatterys has to make sure there products are at a high-standard and they provide a high-quality customer service so customers are retained, so they don't decide to visit other competitors instead of Slatterys. ?? ?? ?? ??
