    You gotta laugh

    Cadbury sold off it's in-house IT to management about 12 years ago to create ITnet which was an independent outsourcing business. Then 3 years ago, after losing a major contract with the cabinet office they got bought out by Serco.

    Meanwhile, now it seems that Cadbury are outsourcing to HP.

    Musical chairs anybody?

    they've definitely struck a further IT infrastructure deal to reduce the number of in-house IT staff even further, not sure if it is with HP or another company.

    Don't forget the megabucks SAP deal that left them with a huge surplus of confectionary...woops. In fact i know one or two people who were paid a very handsome rate working as 'consultants' in IT projects outsourced by Cadbury throughout Europe.

    That's on top of the 700 jobs in production moving to Poland, and you wonder what'll be left of Cadbury in the UK other than a visitor attraction in bournville.
