As a global leader of snacking, Mondelēz International believes the future of snacking is driven to simply do the right thing. From our makers, to our bakers, and even our order-takers, Mondelēz International is committed to invest and create jobs in the diverse communities where our employees and our customers live, work, socialize, and snack.

Economic Inclusion & Supplier Diversity

From sourcing the right ingredients, to innovating the right packaging, Mondelēz International has adopted a shelf-to-field approach that ensures Snacking Made Right. The recipe for success led to the formation of Economic Inclusion and Supplier Diversity (EISD), which is a program that empowers Mondelēz International to procure innovative, high-quality, cost-effective products and services from businesses who are owned by person(s) identified as a minority, woman, LGBTQ+, veteran, differently abled, and/or a historically underutilized business.
