Squeeze on chocolate-making jobs

New technology, including increased automation, will reduce the workforce at Cadbury’s Hobart chocolate factory from 450 to 400. The company’s parent Mondelez announced in August that about 50 jobs would go by the end of the year as part of a $75 million investment program. “The company will realise more efficiencies through investment in new technologies, equipment, and automation, plus increase the skills and capabilities of its people and ensure its teams are the right size,” it said in a statement. Mondelez said most of the job cuts would be achieved through voluntary redundancies. Cadbury has been a major employer in Hobart’s northern suburbs for 95 years.
