Mondelēz can put smiles on the faces of children and adults alike. The company produces sweets and baked products which people have been enjoying for generations. It supplies 16 brands and more than 500 kinds of products on the Czech and Slovak markets. Their product portfolio includes love brands such as the Milka and Toblerone chocolates, Oreo cookies, BeBe Dobré ráno biscuits, or Brumík soft pastry. And do not forget the local Opavia, Fidorka, Figaro, and Tatranky brands, and Kolonáda spa wafers.
One of the four factories in the Czech Republic and Slovakia is located in Opava, and it is the flagship of the company. This plant has been in operation since 1840, and 10 million Oreo cookies are produced here every day. In total, there are 16 production lines in the plant, and five of those are referred to as the “production lines of the future.” The production is operated primarily by a computer, and the human factor is mostly absent. The plant is classified as green and has LEED certification. Aside from a variety of energy-saving technologies and gadgets, they even use rainwater to flush toilets. And the other plants are not staying behind. The history of the Lovosice plant making biscuits and wafers dates as far as 1806. The one in Mariánské Lázně has been producing the Kolonáda spa wafers for more than 160 years, and the Chocolate factory in Bratislava is nearly as magical as Willy Wonka’s.
This encapsulates their corporate culture. The company includes a diverse collective of nationalities and personalities. People who are not afraid to be themselves. A large portion of the employees are women, and this includes leadership positions as well. It is possible to work from home regularly, but this doesn’t mean that you would lose contact with others. The company has technology that allows the employees to work as efficiently from anywhere as if they would be in the office.
The background of an international company gives people many opportunities for both personal and career growth. No one’s journey is set in stone. You just need to make up your mind, and they will give you a tailor-made role, both in the Czech Republic and abroad. They have comprehensive leadership programs for both Junior and Senior Managers and the Mondelēz International University (MIU) platform with a wide range of courses and webinars. The fact that the average length of employment exceeds 8 years proves that the people here don’t just stay in one place but like to learn, grow, and are not afraid to stand up to a challenge!
