Mondelēz International has announced that it has invested $200 million since 2014 in its Opava biscuit manufacturing facility, which produces brands like Oreo, belVita, Milka and Cadbury.
The investment builds on Opava’s heritage of more than a century as a biscuit-making center and supports the company’s global growth strategy to create a best-in-class integrated supply chain and to deliver consumer-inspired quality and innovation that meet changing consumer preferences.
Daniel Myers, Executive Vice President, Integrated Supply Chain, said: “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.”
The Opava plant joins other Mondelēz International Sites of the Future that have opened or been upgraded over the last few years, including sites in Sri City, India; Salinas, Mexico; Bournville, United Kingdom; and, most recently, the new manufacturing facility that opened in Bahrain in April.
