This company was to be the foundation of Cadbury Limited which is now the world's largest chocolate producers. John Cadbury had become a maker of drinking chocolate and cocoa in 1831.

Conclusion

In order to collect primary research I will be asking a variety of people questionnaires related to Cadbury Dairy Milk and their products. I used this method as a questionnaire gives a variety of answers to choose from and I will also get accurate results. I decided to create one questionnaire for the entire group as it is time consuming and it kept it more consistent. Each person in the group had a find three people to ask the questionnaire to. Together there would be around sixty sets of results. This adds to it being more time consuming as this would be quicker rather than each person asking sixty people themselves. I also decided to collate my results because a larger sample size means that the results would be more accurate. Data Analysis Limitations There are various problems that could have affected the results of my data. One of the problems that could have affected this was there was a small sample size. Because there was a small sample size the results wouldn't have been as reliable as it would be if there was a bigger sample across a wide range of places. Another problem that could also affect the result is where the questionnaire has been completed geographically. The questionnaires could have been completed in the same area.
