Since company owner Mondelez International closed the operation earlier this year, the employees have gone and the building has gradually been emptied of machinery, memorabilia and a variety of other items.
Vast rooms, some extending the width of an inner-city block, have been stripped, the absence of machinery only highlighting the actual size of the former factory.
They had been used to working in their shirt sleeves, as the factory machinery generated temperatures of more than 30degC. A giant 500kg Easter bunny mould stands guard near the entrance to the downstairs area, formerly the entry point for raw materials. Inside, shelves full of white factory coats and overalls are reminders of the number of people who used to work here.
Empty concrete staircases lead upstairs to more vast rooms, all deserted, silent and very cold.
Safety warnings and other signs are still in place, but there are no staff to read or heed them.
At one end of the staff cafeteria stand hundreds of metal lockers. A kitchen has seen busier times.
On the far wall of the room, alongside a large Mondelez company banner with the message "together", is a large noticeboard covered by many paper notices. Across the top several signs tell us — "Jobs Here". Emerging from the cold, empty, silent site, we still cannot smell the chocolate.
