Our global ambition is to "Empower people to snack right": give everyone the opportunity to snack mindfully. Our mission is to lead the future of snacking in our local markets, and worldwide, by offering our consumers the right snack, at the right time, and made in the right way.
From sourcing ingredients responsibly to using natural resources efficiently or making them renewable, from ensuring human rights to promoting the safety of our employees and consumers - we want to make our snacks in an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable way.
Cocoa is the key ingredient in our chocolate. Mondelēz International launched the Cocoa Life program in 2012 to address the complex challenges faced by cocoa farming communities and to ensure the sustainable cultivation of cocoa. By the end of 2021, the Cocoa Life program has reached 209,954 cocoa growers in 2,597 communities. In 2021, 75% of the cocoa volume for chocolate brands is sourced through Cocoa Life, including 100% for our much-loved chocolate brands such as Côte d’Or, Milka and Toblerone. More information at www.cocoalife.org.
Wheat is the primary ingredient in our biscuits. At Mondelēz International, we work with local farmers on the Harmony program for sustainable wheat farming. The program takes care of soil quality, reduces CO2 emissions, helps save water and protects and promotes local biodiversity. In Belgium, we partner with over 130 farmers, and we can count on the advice of Natuurpunt on local biodiversity. In 2021, 55,830 hectares of Harmony wheat was sowed in Europe, of which 1400 hectares in Belgium. This wheat is used for biscuits made in our factory in Herentals (TUC, Prince, LiGA, Pim's, ...).
