Blog: "World's second most-powerful woman" visits Bournville
Dean Best | 7 October 2010
The Cadbury workers at its historic Bournville site are today (7 October) set to see the visit of one of the world's most powerful women.
No, not Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton or Angela Merkel - but Irene Rosenfeld, the chairman and CEO of parent company Kraft Foods.
It is Rosenfeld's first visit to the factory since Kraft bought Cadbury in February and, given the then heated reaction to the US firm's takeover of the UK confectioner, it has attracted more column inches than the usual business trip.
The list was headed by the US First Lady, who just beat Rosenfeld to top spot. At number two, Rosenfeld was judged more powerful than Merkel (4th) and Secretary of State Clinton (5th).
PepsiCo chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi came in at number six - just above Poker Face herself Lady Gaga.
Today (23 December) is just-food's last day before closing for Christmas. We'll return, raring to go on Tuesday 3 January - but of course there's been plenty of top-notch content that has gone live in...
