Mondelēz, owner of countless well-known chocolate and biscuit brands, is "on course" to achieving its goals to make both production and consumption of its products more sustainable by 2020.
Less sugar, salt and saturated fats
The food concern recorded its efforts in the 2018 Impact Progress Report, which concerns conscious snacking on the one hand and sustainability on the other. Mondelēz has managed to reduce the amount of sugar, salt and saturated fat in most of the brands they sell. For example, Prince and Oreo biscuits respectively contain 54 % and 74 % less saturated fat and 17 % and 30 % less salt. For Tuc biscuits, the company has even managed to reduce saturated fats by 70 %.
The report also represents the multinational's efforts in the field of sustainability, more precisely the war against deforestation and the protection of human rights. Mondelēz is well on its way towards manufacturing 100 % of its biscuits in Europe with sustainable Harmony wheat by 2022 - currently, the level is at 75 %. All of the palm oil Mondelēz uses carries the RSPO certificate: by the end of 2018, 95 % of it could be traced back to the factory and 99 % came from suppliers that use a harmonised policy in the entire supply chain.
Earlier this month, Mondelēz already published the Cocoa Life report, which is also part of the global sustainability strategy. Currently, 43 % of chocolate brands is already being manufactured with sustainable cocoa. The idea is to raise this percentage all the way up to 100 % by 2025.
