WHAT COUNTRY IS MILKA FROM?
Made with Alpine milk, Milka has been delighting consumers in Germany and beyond since 1901. The brand, with its unique lilac-colored packaging and Lila, the Milka cow, have a dedicated “cow-munity” of adoring fans around the world!
WHO OWNS MILKA BRAND?
Milka was acquired by Kraft in 1990, when the brand was sold in only two countries. It is now sold in 22 countries with sales of about £1bn. The switch in investment comes as Cadbury reconsiders the digital strategy for its ‘Spots V Stripes’ marketing campaign in the run-up to London 2012.
WHO INVENTED MILKA CHOCOLATE?
According to Science Direct, “Milk powder, as a commercial product, can be traced to as early as 1868.” In the late 1800s, the chocolate legend Henri Nestlé had developed a powdered milk product, which inspired his friend Daniel Peter to invent the milk chocolate we know and love today (via Swissinfo.ch).
It is sold in bars and a number of novelty shapes for Easter and Christmas. Milka also produces chocolate-covered cookies and biscuits. Milka brand’s name is derived from a portmanteau of the product’s two main ingredients: “MILch (milk) and KAkao (cocoa or chocolate).”
