At Mondelēz International, we do not test our products on animals, nor do we fund or contract with external agencies or research institutions to conduct animal testing on our products or on our ingredients unless that testing is required by a government regulatory agency and there is no available alternative.
We are committed to replacing and reducing Animal Testing and will only engage in Animal Testing when regulatory agencies require it to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of a new ingredient and there are no approved non-animal methods available, and when it is needed to advance fundamental knowledge in nutritional science and approved nonanimal methods are not available.
Animal Testing will only be done by accredited facilities that follow proper animal welfare guidelines and comply with stringent principles, standards and procedures developed by third party organizations, such as the U.S. National Research Council’s Institute of Lab Animal Resources and the Council for International Organizations of Medical Science.
All Animal Testing must apply the internationally recognized "3Rs" (Replace animal when testing, Reduce the number of animals being used in the tests, and Refine the testing process to implement suitable procedures) and are consistent with the NIH/EPA testing agreement of 2008.
We are committed to help reducing the need for animal testing and encourage our suppliers and research institutions to use non-animal tests.
