Cadbury Schweppes plc was a food conglomerate formed in 1969 by the merger of British chocolate company Cadbury and Swiss carbonated beverage company Schweppes. In 2008, after several subsidiaries and brands are sold, Cadbury Schweppes finally split and refocused as its predecessors. Confectionery business became Cadbury plc and the US soft drinks business became Dr. Pepper Snapple Group Inc.
Cadbury itself later acquired by American food conglomerate Kraft Foods, Inc. in 2010 and became part of Mondelēz International in Kraft's 2012 split. Mondelēz, coincidentally, held 13% stakes in Keurig Dr Pepper (formed by a merger in 2018 of Keurig Green Mountain, which Mondelēz previously had 25% stakes of the company, and Dr Pepper Snapple Group), which owns several former Cadbury Schweppes beverage brands.
