We're a passionate team of experts in nutritional sciences and communications. We drive innovation and success through nutrition research. Our mission is to lead the future of snacking around the world by offering the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way.
We design, develop and share our innovations in nutrition research through the foods and beverages we create.
As the world's largest snack company, we know we have a critical role to play in empowering consumers to snack right. That means creating a future where people and the planet thrive and doing business the right way by fostering sustainable and mindful snacking. With our mindful snacking 2025 goals, we will be creating snacks that meet a range of well-being needs, inspiring mindful snacking habits and investing in more sustainable communities. Everything we do is informed by what we hear from our consumers -- from the ingredients we choose, to the nutrition profile and quality we design -- even how we package and label our foods.
Nutrition is a priority field of research for Mondelēz International, and a passion for us. We have a talented team of approximately 2,400 scientists (nutritionists, dietitians, chemists and engineers) around the world. And we use a multi-disciplinary approach to explore the health benefits of wholesome ingredients and improve the nutritive quality and profile of our products.
We keep renovating and innovating our portfolio to satisfy consumers’ current and changing well-being needs. We want to make sure our range keeps satisfying the diverse needs of millions of consumers around the world. So for example nutrient-wise, we are continuing to reduce sugar, sodium and fat in snacks. We are committed to growing our portion control products to 20% of our global snacks net revenue by 2025. As well as expanding our portion control options, we are placing portion guidance on all packs, for all snacks, globally by 2025. Every day, we turn insights into nutrition and well-being innovation at 11 key research and development centers worldwide. As part of our work, we conduct and publish sound clinical research to refine, improve and communicate the intrinsic health benefits of key ingredients used in our products. Our current nutrition research focus areas include: starch digestibility; carbohydrate quality; healthier oils/lipids; proteins; sodium replacers; fibers and whole grains.
We invest in research to develop technology-based solutions to help improve the nutritional profile of our products and better meet the needs of our consumers. In addition, we have nutrition-based research partnerships around the world with universities, private and academic institutions to help us stay at the forefront of emerging nutrition science.
