One of 'most exciting days since factory opened'

We were absolutely delighted to host Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh at Mars Chocolate UK.

We have been manufacturing chocolate in Slough for over 80 years and it was a real privilege to have the opportunity to share our UK manufacturing heritage with our guests and introduce some of our fantastic associates.

We have over 1,000 associates working on the site and everyone was thrilled to be part of the visit.

It has been one of the most exciting days at Mars Chocolate UK since we first opened the factory in 1932.

– Fiona Dawson, president of Mars Chocolate UK
