Chicago-based Mondelēz International is known throughout the cookie industry as the producer of iconic brands such as LU, Oreo, Côte d'Or and Milka. It is regarded as Europe’s biggest snack company and has 133 manufacturing plants on five continents. With a total production capacity of 1.6 million cookies per hour, it’s fair to say the plant in Flanders is fruitful.
Yet, due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, Mondelez International had to move production of the famous TUC cracker elsewhere. The two existing production lines in Flanders were expanded with a new line, creating an additional capacity of 6,500 tons. This expansion will support growth of up to 40% and create 10 to 20 additional jobs
