Introduction

C6: An understanding of the importance of New product development to An organisation. To keep customers loyal to the business Cadbury introduce new products to the market as this helps, to increase both competition and keep customers interested in Cadbury products. However finding a product that will be successful in the market is time consuming and a lot of hard work, and it is a big risk for not just Cadbury but any business launching a brand new product to the customers.
