Mondelez is investing in Czech Republic
A factory responsible with making biscuits for Oreo, belVita, Milka and Cadbury has been receiving massive investments from the Mondelēz International Corporation over the last few years.
The Opava biscuit manufacturing facility, located in the Czech Republic, has been on the receiving end of a series of investments from Mondelēz International, totaling 200 million USD, since 2014. This is good news for the factory’s nearly 1,000 employees dedicated to delivering quality products.
‘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’, says the company’s Executive Vice President for Integrated Supply Chain, Daniel Myers.
With intent to modernize operations and increase production capacity, the business is a constant source of profit for shareholders, according to the company’s Executive Vice President.
On the same note, the Executive Vice President and President of Mondelēz Europe, Hubert Weber, says the European company is the most modern and a leading producer of biscuits on the continent’s market:
‘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 company prides itself on maintaining world-class safety standards for the food it sells and the facilities in which its people work. 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 a new manufacturing facility that opened in Bahrain in April 2018.
