Cadbury’s Freddo brand is leaping into the hot drinks category to help retailers warm up sales with families.

Available to order from 5th September, Cadbury is introducing this new drinking chocolate from a trusted brand that aims to bring new consumers to the hot beverages category.

Mondelēz International leads the drinking chocolate market with a 68 per cent share (Nielsen MAT to w/e 16.04.16), and the Cadbury Freddo brand has a well-established 30 year heritage, appealing to parents with families.

The product builds on both Cadbury Freddo’s popularity and with great feedback from mums already, we believe this launch can help unlock incremental sales in the drinking chocolate category.
