Cadbury Chocolate and Christianity Cadbury Chocolate and Christianity Cadbury Chocolate was founded by a Quaker, John Cadburywho has a strong sense of social responsibility motivated by his Christian convictions. His family were anti-slavery and campaigned for abolition.
Yep, the big purple box with its treasure of miniature confections inside — chocolates as uniquely Australian as Uluru or a kangaroo. The Cadbury factory in Claremont, a suburb of Glenorchy in Tasmania, is part of a residential development modelled after the specially-created town of Bourneville in England.
Factories in Victorian England were usually dark, oppressive and unhealthy places to work. The Cadbury brothers, who revolutionised the production of chocolate, were at the forefront of improving working conditions for their employees.
The Cadbury family were devout followers of Jesus and his teachings. They built a radically innovative workplace with warm rooms to dry clothes and rooms to cook food.
To cap off these ground-breaking social benefits, there was even a retirement plan. Despite many setbacks, John Cadbury pioneered the commercial production of drinking chocolate and cocoa.
A social activist, John campaigned against slavery, the exploitation of children in the work force and cruelty to animals. His dream was to produce a drink that would be an alternative to alcohol. His belief that drinking chocolate was not only healthy but could pull families away from pubs is reflected in some of his early brand names: Certainly neither of them has the ring of Rocky Road or Caramello, does it?
Yet his vision has continued to influence Bourneville. Even today, none of the local pubs, bars or shops serve alcohol. His son George ploughed the profits of the firm into pension reform and, as a pacifist, opposition to the Boer War. It has been a challenge for them during the world wars of the twentieth century to show their patriotism, despite refusing to enlist.
Unfortunately the high ideals of the Cadbury family have been all but lost in our modern society. Their Christian legacy however has not totally been lost as their efforts to create a just and equitable society have changed the face of the western world.
They were people who not only put their money where their mouth was, but where their heart was. They followed the Scriptural directive: To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.Milk chocolates with a soft caramel centre.
