A fundraising drive by a Dunedin-based chocolate company has almost reached $1 million in pledges.
The campaign was started due to the Dunedin Cadbury factory closing and is an attempt by the Dunedin community to buy it.
Jim O’Malley is the man behind the venture. He has named the project ‘Own the Factory’ and has joined forces with existing Dunedin artisan chocolate brand – the Otago Chocolate Company OCHO.
The idea is to attract as many $100 investors as possible.
The US-based owner of Cadbury, Mondelez International, announced in February that the Dunedin factory, which employs 360 people, would be closed later in 2017.
