Hard Times for Oompa Loompas

In my last post on The Cadbury Crunch, I reminded you that Cadbury had recently announced job-cuts in the 7,500 range. In the predecessor post, Confusing Times for Oompa Loompas, I pointed out that Hershey was closing it’s last Canadian factory. This week brought more grim news, Campbell announced it was looking to sell Godiva. These are likely three of the top five chocolate manufacturers in the world. Let’s just hope business goes well for Mars and Nestle, or the enterprising Oompa-Loompas at Lake Forest Confections are going to have to sell an awful lot of boxes of Le Chocolat to make up for the shortfall!
