In every neighborhood in America you can find our consumers who are diverse, hard-working people from all walks of life, associated with many types of businesses. We would like to leverage the agility of minority- and women-owned businesses to bring innovations and productivity to Mondelez International. With Mondelez International’s products present in 99% of the households in the U.S., this is also an investment in our consumers. We want to support the businesses of the people who buy our products.
To build a diverse and strategic supplier base, Mondelez International is committed to develop a comprehensive and innovative supplier diversity program. We believe that by cultivating strategic procurement relationships with minority-, LGBTQ, Disabled Veteran and women-owned businesses (MWBEs) that provide high quality, innovative, and cost competitive products and services, we help to diversify our supply base, increase competitions in the sourcing process, provide Mondelez International the access to new capabilities and innovations, and above all, we help to provide employment opportunities which enable the employees of our diverse suppliers to become our consumers.
