Introduction

Aim: To evaluate the marketing strategy of Cadbury's Dairy Milk and make any recommendations as to any improvements. Objectives: To conduct primary and secondary research to identify the marketing strategy of CDM. Use appropriate theories/concepts to suggest and justify any potential improvements. Background A young Quaker, John Cadbury opened a business in Bull Street, Birmingham in 1824. 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. It was at this time that the business changed from a grocery shop to the start of the Cadbury manufacturing business that is well known today. In 1861 John Cadbury's two sons Richard and George took over the family business. By the time it was 1879 the two brothers Richard and George had built their own factory in Bournville.

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.
