Wheat is the number one ingredient in the biscuits we make at Mondelez International. So, as Europe’s largest biscuits baker, we believe it is critical for us to help play a key role in tackling the biggest environmental challenges in wheat farming: climate change mitigation and biodiversity protection.
This is why we created the Harmony program in 2008 that seeks the commitment of local farmers in Europe to follow more sustainable practices in the growing and processing of wheat. This pioneering program now collaborates with ~1,3601 farmers across 7 European countries (Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Poland, and Spain), growing ~98%1 of our wheat needs to produce our Europe biscuits2.
