Wrigley sponsors milestone event

1st April 2009

Wrigley’s sponsored summit to discuss the needs of improving access to dental care was a “milestone”, it has been claimed.

Around 150 stakeholders from non-profit groups, government agencies and private industry met to converse over the problem that a growing number of people are unable to access oral health assistance.

Topics discussed included workforce development strategies, strengthening dental delivery systems and improving oral health literacy through social marketing.

John S Findley, president of ADA, commented: “We are very pleased with the success of the summit, which will serve as a milestone toward our common goal of improving access to dental care.”

He added practical solutions from a broad range of shareholders are needed to tackle the problem.

Procter & Gamble, along with the Dental Trade Alliance, supported the meeting.

Wrigley has an established history within the UK and work on its first British factory in North London began in 1926, with it opening a year later.

In 1970, the company relocated to a 45 acre site in Plymouth, which now employs over 600 staff.
