Mondelēz International has unveiled its newest global Technical Center in Jurong, Singapore. This advanced facility focuses on innovation, developing new products and technologies for some of the company’s iconic brands like Clorets, Halls and The Natural Confectionery Company candy; Stride, Trident and Dentyne gum; Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate and Oreo biscuits.
The Singapore Technical Center is part of the company’s previously announced $65 million investment in nine fully equipped and technologically advanced research, development, quality and innovation (RDQI) hubs, strategically positioned around the globe.
These centres enable Mondelēz International to better recruit, retain and develop talent across a range of science and technical disciplines, while streamlining processes and accelerating the company’s growth and innovation.
“Our purpose and vision at Mondelēz International are simple — to create more moments of joy for our consumers with our much-loved brands by building the best snacking company in the world,” said Maurizio Brusadelli, EVP & president AMEA (Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa).
“Singapore’s fantastic infrastructure, thriving RDQI ecosystem and the collaborative approach of government organisations makes it a perfect place for innovation. This is one of the many reasons why we have made Singapore the home of our AMEA region.”
