Cadbury Dairy Milk celebrates its new look
It’s still the same delicious taste with our glass and a half of goodness inside.
Cadbury Dairy Milk has unveiled a fresh new look, with a distinctive and modern twist, for its iconic chocolate slabs.
The refreshed look reflects the brands natural goodness and philanthropic spirit, envisioned by founder John Cadbury over a century ago. While chocolate lovers can still expect the same delicious Cadbury Dairy Milk quality that they have come to expect from each slab, the new elevated packaging emphasises Cadbury’s vision to inspire goodnessthrough its products, people and programmes.
Taking cues from the archives, The Dairy Milk logotype has been recrafted to include the distinctive Dairy Milk pattern from the original 1905 pack. This adds greater depth to the iconic Cadbury purple packaging, further showing and amplifying the distinct variants, ensuring chocolate lovers have no trouble finding their favourite flavour in-store.
The iconic Glass & a Half logo, which amplifies Cadbury Dairy Milk’s generous nature, has also been redesigned to link directly with the chocolate slab, which together with the natural ingredient notes, highlights the quality of the ingredients and the classic creamy Cadbury Dairy Milk taste that South Africans love. The new look packaging proudly showcases the Cocoa Life logo, which represents the Mondelez 100% sustainably sourced cocoa programme.
Cocoa Life is Cadbury Dairy Milk’s commitment to keep building and empowering resilient, thriving cocoa farming communalities to produce its 100% sustainably sourced cocoa beans. Every time consumers purchase their favourite Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, they are generously giving back – this is the brand’s promise to consumers. The Cocoa Life sustainability programme has been integral to the brand over the past eight years. The programme supports building a thriving cocoa supply chain by increasing cocoa productivity and empowering local cocoa farming communities to improve their resilience.
This rings true to how the Cadbury brothers supported communities in the early 1900’s – working on the ground to help men and women grow quality cocoa.
The programme focuses on turning cocoa into a business of choice for the 175,000 cocoa farmers, creating inclusive and empowered communities that concentrate on sustainable farming practices, upskilling women, youth development through ongoing education and reading opportunities as well as teaching these communities how to conserve, protect and restore the surrounding forests and lands. To date Cocoa Life has assisted in planting 1.2 million trees in cocoa regions across the world. By 2025, Mondelez has committed to having all its chocolate brands, across the globe, source their cocoa through the programme.
As an iconic brand here in South Africa and the world over, the refreshed Cadbury Dairy Milk packaging is an example of their commitment to continue to stay true to their roots offering a truly authentic brand, crafted from ethically sourced ingredients and in manner they can all be proud of to deliver their delicious quality chocolate.
This is a brand that is built on generations of wholesome goodness, authenticity and generosity. Cadbury Dairy Milk inspires the kind of nostalgia and deep-rooted sense of connection that other brands can only dream about. They knew there was a need to deliver more than just a newly refreshed and modernised design, they wanted to recapture the very spirit of Cadbury; drawing inspiration from their rich heritage to create a modern and playful identity that still has clear recognition amongst consumers.
