Mondelez International are said to be in talks with Burton’s Biscuits Co to buy the license for producing Cadbury’s biscuits.
Burton’s, which also produces Wagon Wheels and Maryland cookies, makes biscuits including Cadbury Fingers under licence from Cadbury UK. It’s being reported that talks are at an early stage and that the deal could be worth £200 million.
If a deal is struck, this could see Mondelez unite its confectionery and biscuit arms as back in 2010, the global food giant bought Cadbury in an £11.5 billion deal from Kraft Foods.
Mondelez International and Burton’s Biscuits have not yet released a statement.
