Mondelēz International has inaugurated its newest global Technical Centre in India located in Thane, Maharashtra. The India Technical Centre has been set up with an investment of $15 million and will support new products and technologies for the company’s global brands in Chocolate and Beverages. The Technical Centre will also focus on improving consumer science, packaging and productivity. This is part of the company’s strategy to invest $65 million in developing a global network of state-of-the-art technical hubs strategically positioned around the world, supporting a growth-oriented innovation agenda.

“Our mission at Mondelēz International is simple – to offer consumers the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way. And our global Technical Centre network is crucial to support this,” says Maurizio Brusadelli, EVP & President AMEA (Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa). “Our AMEA region hosts three global technical centres – the other two being in China and Singapore – demonstrating that our dynamic markets are at the heart of the company’s growth strategy. Our investment in the Thane Technical Centre further emphasizes the importance of India to our global business.”

“With these Technical Centres, we’re focusing our investment in research, equipment and capabilities, driving innovation to accelerate our growth,” says Rob Hargrove, Executive Vice President, Research, Development and Quality. “Our RDQ hubs will improve speed, efficiency and effectiveness, while increased scale will enable us to address evolving consumer needs more quickly. We are delighted that one of our global technical centres is based in India, which has one of the best technical and scientific capabilities in the world.”

The India hub joins nine other Mondelēz International Technical Centres that are already in operation around the world, including East Hanover, New Jersey, in the United States; Curitiba in Brazil; Bournville and Reading, both in the UK; Wroclaw in Poland; Singapore and Suzhou in China; Saclay in France; Munich in Germany.
