The crass American food conglomerate Kraft is set to acquire Cadbury, which has been making chocolates for 186 years. Good news for Kraft, because the move gains the food giant a foothold in the lucrative Indian market. Bad news for all else concerned. It is estimated the Brits could lose 6,000 jobs, not to mention a cherished company the country has always prided. Worse still: The precious Dairy Milk bar is now in the slimy hands of Kraft.
