Slavery in the Chocolate Industry
The forced labour of children in the Ivorian cocoa farms is at a distance from the glamourised candy producers such as Mars and Nestlé, and a universe away from the day-to-day consumers of chocolate. That such a quixotic market shares a commonality with the more exposed diamond market, for example, whose implication in the sale and involvement of guns in tribal cleansing has long been documented, drives home the reminder that our modern prosperity, usually reached and used with the best of consumer intentions, if not also the corporate, and even our harmless, insignificant indulgences sometimes owe themselves to an extremely complex source...

In this section Death also tells us about how he personally likes a dark chocolate colored sky (hence “Death and Chocolate”) though he tries to enjoy the billion or so flavors of sky to slowly suck on.

Cadbury and Worms
In October 2003, just a month before Diwali, customers in Mumbai complained about finding worms in Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates. Quick to respond, the Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration seized the chocolate stocks manufactured at Cadbury's Pune plant.
In defense, Cadbury issued a statement that the infestation was not possible at the manufacturing stage and poor storage at the retailers was the most likely cause of the reported case of worms.
But the FDA didn't buy that. FDA commisioner, Uttam Khobragade told CNBC-TV18, "It was presumed that worms got into it at the storage level, but then what about the packing - packaging was not...

Cost-plus pricing - Set the price at your production cost, including both cost of goods and fixed costs at your current volume, plus a certain profit margin. For example, your widgets cost €40 in raw materials and production costs, and at sales volume, your fixed costs come to €40 per unit. Your total cost is €80 per unit. You decide that you want to operate at a 20% markup, so you add €20 to the cost and come up with a price of $80 per unit. So long as you...

There are a couple of weaknesses in the product life cycle of Hershey.

Projective technique – Word associated
Word association is a projective technique where the respondent is presented with a stimulus and is asked to respond with the first thing that comes to their mind when shown a given name, photo or event (Malhotra (1999)).
According to Malhotra & Berks (2000) the assumption of using this technique is that the association allows respondents to reveal their inner feelings about the topic. Responses can be analysed by calculating either of the following:
1. The frequency of any word that is given as a response.
2. The amount of time it takes before a response is given (hesitation).
3. The number of respondents that don’t respond to the test...

They don't have any Chinese fusion coffee or snacks. They do have some great bakery goodies that you can't find in any Starbucks in U.S.
Perry always makes sure that I have their spinach quiche (it's actually a pie, more than a quiche 'cos no egg is added) when we are there. They always warm it up in the oven and bring it over to your table.

American’s children are faced with skyrocketing obesity rates. Over the last thirty years obesity rates have seen an increase of 300%. Patricia Crawford of Medscape Education Diabetes & Endocrinology states, “Children born in 2000 have a 1-in-3 chance of developing type 2 diabetes during their lifetime, and 70% of obese 5-to-17 year-olds in a population-based study had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease”. If the outcome of childhood obesity is not turned around, humankind will have to endure the discomfort and cost of many obesity related chronic diseases.
The question now...
