As a part to accelerate growth in Europe and also due to the Company’s Global Supply Chain Reinvention Journey, Mondelēz International invests $200 Million in its Czech Republic biscuit plant in Opava. Currently Opava plant employs around 1000 employees and produces brands like Oreo, belVita, Milka and Cadbury for the European market.
According to said Daniel Myers, Executive Vice President, Integrated Supply Chain:
“The investment in our Opava plant is a great example of our global effort to build a world-class supply chain that reduces complexity and increases flexibility while being cost conscious. We’re focused on winning with our consumers and customers, and we’re becoming a more nimble organization as we simplify and modernize our operations and production capacity for today and the future. By undertaking these changes, we’re making our company more efficient, creating the fuel we need to invest in our brands and our people – our most important assets – and deliver sustainable, profitable growth for our shareholders.”
Hubert Weber, EVP and President, Mondelēz Europe further added:
“Our growth story in Europe continues thanks to the investments we have made in Opava, one of the most modern factories in our network and a leading producer of biscuits for our European markets. The five state-of-the-art manufacturing Lines of the Future installed here have enabled us to improve the speed, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of our biscuit production, while improving competitiveness in the European market. The modern production lines enable us to meet growing demand from European consumers for our Power Brands, while other factories in our network continue to produce the local and regional heritage brands 2 that consumers have loved for generations. In all cases, we apply the same high standards for quality and taste, as well as ensuring we reduce our impact on the environment.””
