Question for Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

UIN HL4527, tabled on 28 January 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have made representations to the government of the United States about the lawsuit brought by Hershey's against import of Cadbury's chocolate products made in England.

Answered on

5 February 2015

Her Majesty’s Government has made no representations in this case. This is a commercial dispute between Hershey’s (as the licenced manufacturer and distributor of Cadbury products within the USA) and a US importer. This dispute relies upon well-known rules and principles and the companies involved have the right to take issues such as this to the judicial authorities in the appropriate territory.
