Analyse the reasons why Cadbury chose to develop its business in India rather than China (8 marks) For Cadbury to continue growing they needed to expand out of the US’s saturated chocolate market to extend their products life cycle elsewhere. Due to already operating in a highly competitive and saturated market in the US, by entering the Indian market it provides the firm with a larger number of potential customers, especially due to the ever-growing middle class in India.

Whereas in China there is only a 12% observed growth in the market.
