West Midlands UKIP MEP James Carver has welcomed news that full production of Dairy Milk is returning to Cadbury’s Bournville plant after some manufacturing was earlier moved to Poland.
The company's US owner, Mondelez, came under fire last year after it was accused of breaking a promise to keep making the popular chocolate bars in its Bournville factory.
But following a £75 million investment in its historic Birmingham plant, Mondelez has promised to return all Dairy Milk chocolate production to the UK.
Mr Carver said: “It is reported that Mondelez, which opened a factory Poland to make its Picnic, Crunchy and other ranges, as well as some Dairy Milk, now plans to bring all production back to the UK.
“That is good news for Bournville and the West Midlands, and I and delighted that production of this iconic brand is returning home.
“I raise a glass-and-a-half of British milk as a symbolic toast.”
