You could say our story began in 1761 with Fry’s (who produced the first modern day chocolate bar) … or when John Cadbury opened his first grocery shop in 1824 … or in 1846 with the creation of LU biscuits … or in 1901 with the production of the first Nabisco cookies. But we really came together in 2012 with the creation of Mondelēz International. We combine the energy and passion of a new company with the strength and heritage of 100+ year-old brands – and nearly 100,000 employees working across 165 countries. We have the scale and resources of a big organization, together with the speed, hunger, creativity and agility of a smaller company. And we believe this power of both big and small makes us unique.
