Mondelez International has renewed its global strategic partnership with Facebook, the world’s largest discovery platform, with a focus on creating and delivering creative video content and driving impulse snack purchasing online. Through this partnership, the companies will work together to leverage and innovate around two of the fastest growing consumer behaviours on social media platforms: video consumption and mobile commerce.

“The partnership with Facebook is a core element of our fearless marketing vision which aims at accelerating growth through transformational marketing,” says Dana Anderson, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Mondelez International. “Investing in large-scale media partnerships enables us to connect our brands with consumers in new creative ways.”

On the video front, a dedicated, full-time Facebook creative strategist will work alongside Mondelez International marketers and its agencies to develop scalable video content natively for the platform to optimize social engagement. In addition, Facebook will be responsible for developing playbooks, webinars and eLearning modules that create a unified approach to developing content for the platform across Mondelez International brands. The partnership also includes opportunities to opt into beta-testing programs on Facebook and Instagram. Brokered in conjunction with Dentsu Aegis Media, the agreement covers 52 countries, including Brazil, France, India, Indonesia, the UK, the US and the Gulf States.

“Our recent campaigns with brands like Philadelphia in Europe have demonstrated that we can deliver engaging, tailor-made video on Facebook and seamlessly convert that content into purchases,” says Gerry D’Angelo, Media Director Europe at Mondelez International. “Partnering with Facebook allows us to leverage their video platform, which is currently the fastest-growing. Combined with their unparalleled reach and social sharing capabilities, we have the opportunity to make Facebook our single largest-selling channel.”

On the e-commerce front, Mondelez International and Facebook will work together to test scalable solutions to drive impulse purchases with some of the company’s Power Brands across key markets such as Australia, India, the UK and the US.

“Facebook is the number one player in mobile, and its ability to reach millennial consumers, our primary target audience, is what makes our partnership so invaluable,” says Cindy Chen, Global Head of E-Commerce at Mondelez International. “Used by consumers and distributors alike, Facebook is the ideal channel for cracking the code on how to ‘sell a cookie online,’ creating a true social digital commerce model with the potential to become our largest digital storefront.”
