We believe that the path to having a positive impact in the world begins by collaborating with communities. Our experience shows that we can make a greater impact by partnering with organizations who share our passion to promote active, healthy lifestyles - a critical component to our well-being mission.
We recognize the challenge is great. More than 2.1 billion people are overweight or obese worldwide. So we’re empowering voices from around the globe – working with consumers, companies, governments and leading non-governmental organizations (NGOs) – to amplify their ideas and bring them to life.
We also know that bringing those ideas to life takes time. That’s why we’re in this for the long term. And through our Mondelēz International Foundation, we’re ramping up our efforts to empower families and communities to lead healthier lives. We’re proud to invest $50 million USD over mulit-years in a three-pronged proven approach to combat obesity: nutrition education, promoting active play and providing access to fresh foods.
We accomplish this in two ways:
- Invest in community programs that get children playing, making informed food choices, and preparing healthy snacks, as well as growing nutritious foods
- Inspire our colleagues to contribute time and talent
To make the biggest impact possible, we work with leading NGOs, such as INMED Partnerships for Children in Brazil, Charities Aid Federation in Russia and Klasse 2000 in Germany, as well as Helen Keller International and China Youth Development Foundation Asia.
