The Cadbury factory at Claremont, Tasmania, is perhaps the most recognizable industrial establishment in Australia, styled as it is "The Factory by Mountain and Sea". This year marks the ninetieth anniversary of its official opening and still the factory and its site remain faithful to the vision on which it was founded and which was so influential in the decision to locate the enterprise in Tasmania. As the leading confectionery manufacturer in the United Kingdom, Cadbury was committed to technological development and production efficiency. The Claremont development provided the first post-war opportunity to incorporate the latest approach to factory layout design and the latest engineering in construction, services and machinery. This strong foundation has sustained the factory through difficult economic times and periods of rapid expansion.
