Agricultural Supply Chain

德赢体育appOur global food system is facing numerous challenges that are weighing down on individual farmers and the land they use. These challenges are complex and call for solutions that require coordinated efforts by governments, industry and scientific, social and environmental experts. Smallholder farming communities in particular need support to increase their resilience. We’re working to build a thriving ingredient supply chain to ensure sustainable supplies of high-quality cocoa, wheat and other raw materials to create our delicious snacks—chocolate brands like Milka, Cadbury and Côte d’Or; or Oreo and LU biscuits. We are using our reach and global presence to work together with outside experts to give farmers a voice. Our signature programs, Cocoa Life and Harmony Wheat, aim to make a positive impact on the farms, communities and environments where our main raw materials are grown. We are also addressing key areas where we can have the most impact, requiring more transparency, and collaborating with our key suppliers and others to promote widespread change so that sustainability becomes the normal way to do business in key raw materials

Cocoa Life

At Mondelēz International, we are passionate about chocolate. Cocoa is the essence of our chocolate and vital to our business, so we ensure it is “made right.” Making it right means tackling the complex challenges that cocoa farmers face. That is why we created Cocoa Life. Just as the Cadbury brothers did more than 100 years ago, we work on the ground, hand-in-hand with the men and women who make their living from cocoa. Through Cocoa Life, we are creating a movement for lasting change, rooted in deep understanding through sector-wide collaboration and partnership. We co-create solutions to make cocoa farming a business of choice and to build communities that take on their own development while conserving the natural resources. Together, we grow opportunities. When our consumers choose chocolate with the Cocoa Life logo, it means everyone can love our chocolate as much as we do— because it’s made the right way.

Harmony Wheat

德赢体育appAs the world’s largest biscuit producer, we’re on a mission to make sure the wheat we use is grown with the environment in mind. Working with farmers, local organizations and governments, we are changing the way wheat is grown by improving local conditions and farming systems. Harmony Wheat works with over 1,600 wheat farmers, 13 millers and 26 cooperatives, and has seen a 20% reduction in pesticide use. Currently, 80% of our Western European biscuits are made with Harmony Wheat. By 2022, we will create 100% of our biscuits across Europe with this program.

Sustainable Palm Oil Sourcing

We’re committed to sourcing palm oil sustainably to preserve natural habitats, stop deforestation, protect human rights and reduce climate change. As of 2019, 100% of our palm oil was sourced from suppliers who operate sustainably and transparently. Click here to read more about our sustainable efforts with our palm oil supply chain.

Dairy Collaboration

Milk and other dairy products are important ingredients for our cheese and chocolate products. Since 2013, sustainability projects all over the world are coordinated by the Dairy Sustainability Framework (DSF), the dairy sector’s program to align, connect and demonstrate continuous improvement in sustainability. In Europe, we built our sustainability agenda by working with key suppliers and national initiatives on a principle of continuous improvement. In Germany, we supported the development of a new voluntary Quality Milk Standard and implemented it in 2016. And across Europe, we are engaging all of our milk suppliers to build their sustainability roadmaps. We track progress according to the proportion of our dairy ingredients sourced from recognized industry standards. Currently, 62 percent of our total global dairy supply is sourced from suppliers following recognized standards, meeting our aim to achieve majority by 2020.
