Mondelez International reveals 'Call for Well-Being' strategy

3/12/2014

DEERFIELD, Ill. — Mondelez International, a snack industry leader whose portfolio includes such brands as Oreo and Nabisco, announced a plan to improve the well-being of our planet and people. The "Call for Well-Being" strategy seeks to broaden the reach and impact of the company's programs. It will start with new global nutrition targets across its product mix, the company said.



"We know the health of people, communities, our business and the planet are inextricably linked," said Christine McGrath, VP external affairs and head of the company's global well-being platform. "People around the world aspire to live healthier, better lives, but none of us can do it alone. We want to work with others to expand the conversation around well-being and bring an entrepreneurial approach to address the growing concerns around public health and the environment."



The "Call for Well-Being" focuses on four key areas:



Empowering consumers to snack mindfully. Mondelez International has set global nutrition targets to reach these goals by 2020: Grow "better choice" product to 25% of revenue, reduce sodium and saturated fat by 10%, increase whole grains by 25%, and increase individually wrapped options of 200 calories or less by 25%.



Partnering with communities. The company is investing $50 million in healthy-lifestyle community partnerships over the next several years, with a focus on nutrition education and the promotion of active lifestyles.



Securing sustainable agricultural supplies. The company will help farmers with a 10-year, $600 million investment in its Cocoa Life and Coffee Made Happy programs.



Reducing environmental footprint. The company will promote biodiversity and sound environmental practices. It also seeks to cut out energy and water use, waste and greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing by 15% by 2015.
