Mondelēz International Achieves Plastic Packaging Goals in the Philippines

Company meets EPR commitment of collecting and diverting equivalent volumes of plastic 

Reducing packaging, evolving packaging, and helping improve diversion systems 

    Global snacking leader Mondelēz International strives to advance its support for a more circular economy for packaging in the Philippines. Recently, the Company has made strides to advance more sustainable snacking by reducing its packaging use, evolving its packaging, and helping improve diversion systems in the Country. Most notably, the Company has achieved its commitment to collect and divert the equivalent volumes of its post-consumer plastic packaging used in the Philippines in 2023. This is in support of the local Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Law, which obliges companies to be responsible for the plastic they use in their operations. 

    As part of its mission to lead the future of snacking, Mondelēz International empowers people to snack right, by offering the right snack, for the right moment, and made the right way. Making snacks the right way for both the people and the planet means focusing on making snacks with more sustainable ingredients as well as supporting a more circular economy for packaging. Mondelēz International is the maker of Oreo, Toblerone, Cadbury Dairy Milk, Tang, Eden Cheese, Cheez Whiz and Tiger Biscuits.
