Mondelez Resumes Making Oreos In Ukraine

Mondelez has resumed production of Oreo cookies in Ukraine after its plant in the eastern city of Trostyanets was heavily damaged during Russia's invasion roughly two years ago, Jessica DiNapoli reported for Reuters.


Mondelez continues to operate three factories in Russia and sell its cookies and snacks there.



The Trostyanets plant, now fully rebuilt, had partially reopened last year to produce chocolates, according to a company statement. Mondelez confirmed that the Oreo cookies and other chocolates produced in Ukraine are not being exported to neighboring Russia.



Despite facing boycotts and calls to cease operations from employees, activists, and investors, Mondelez continues to operate three factories in Russia and sell its cookies and snacks there.


Mondelez stated it aimed to make its Russian business "stand-alone" with a self-sufficient supply chain by the end of 2023. Earlier this year, the company appointed new leadership for Europe, including Russia.



Meanwhile, Mondelez's competitors, such as Nestle, continue to sell products in Russia, as food items are not subject to international sanctions. During the repair of the Trostyanets plant, Mondelez imported Oreos to Ukraine.
