Dunedin’s Cadbury chocolate factory is where 85% of New Zealand’s chocolate is made, however production will be closing in March 2018.
The Cadbury World Experience is a one-hour tour through a visitor centre where you learn all about chocolate and get to sample different parts of the chocolate-making process. The centre includes a chocolate waterfall and and and there are several tasting opportunities. There is also a shorter (and cheaper) alternative, which only takes 10–15 minutes. Several years ago a visit would include a full factory tour, but you no longer get to see the production facilities.
Although the factory will close in 2018, Cadbury World will remain open and expand into the current factory space in late 2018 making the attraction six times its current size. When the expansion is complete, Cadbury World will feature a glass lift (like the one in the Willy Wonka story), chocolate making displays, holograms and a bigger chocolate waterfall.
