Thornton Plc is a chocolate organization of United Kingdom that had been established in the year 1911 by Joseph William Thornton. The organization is known for manufacturing a number of different categories of chocolates along with other items of sweets (Askew, 2013). As per the records of 2013, the turnover of the organization had been found to be 221 million Euros with 186 franchises and 249 shops along with the provision of facilities for placing orders through internet, providing mail orders, along with the provision of commercial service (Crump, 2012). Thornton ended up becoming the biggest confectionery at the point when Cadbury ended up becoming the part of a specific group that was non- confectionery. At this point of time, Thornton was the only parent company in the entire market of United Kingdom (GlobalData, 2011). As the same point of time, it had been retaining minor amount of sales with respect to the developed fudge and toffee. This had been done by making a shift in the groups by following specialism, after the end of post war rationing, into the market of chocolate, and established a broad range of chocolates from Belgium, Switzerland and other continental areas. These result in the formation of sales in bulk amount. It has been listed over the Stock Exchange of London and also is a part of the index of FTSE Fledgling (Live-pr, 2013). While the presence on high street had been cut back, there has been an increase in the production and sales and some of the shops have started diversifying themselves for becoming cafes.
