INTERNATIONAL. Mondelez World Travel Retail has been named as The Trinity Forum’s first Sustainability Partner.
The leading confectionery manufacturer has become strongly associated with sustainability in recent years, as many channel players collectively zone in on eco-friendly practices.
The Mondelez portfolio covers all main confectionery categories including chocolate, biscuit, gum and candy. Its globally known brands include Toblerone, Milka, Cadbury, Oreo, Daim, Côte d’Or, Mirabell, Marabou, Freia, Trident, Stimorol and Bassett’s.
Several of these brands have been at the centre of recent Mondelez airport activations promoting sustainability.
Earlier this year, to coincide with World Environment Day, Mondelez World Travel Retail partnered with The Moodie Davitt Report for a successful month-long social media campaign that encouraged travel retail industry stakeholders to embrace sustainable practices. The campaign ran throughout June, with all material accompanied by the hashtag #TRmaderight.
Mondelez World Travel Retail Managing Director Jaya Singh will be among the speakers at The Trinity Forum, the world’s most influential airport commercial revenues conference (25-26 October). He will present a special sustainability-focused presentation underlining Mondelez’s Travel Retail Made Right industry agenda.
Singh said: “Sustainability has been a driving force for much of Mondelez WTR’s activity in travel retail this year. I am pleased to build on the incredible momentum built thus far with an industry first.
“With our partners at The Moodie Davitt Report, we are proud to announce Mondelez WTR as Trinity Forum’s first ever Sustainability Partner as we continue to advance our Travel Retail Made Right agenda for people and planet.
“People are at the heart of Mondelez WTR’s operations and we are pleased to highlight our commitment to implementing sustainable practices and products for the greater good of the industry and beyond.”
He added: “Mondelez WTR’s dedication to delivering sustainability in an authentic and meaningful way inspired us to gain direct insight from consumers to understand what sustainability looks, tastes and feels like for them.
“Our goal is to share these results with industry peers to encourage the advancement of sustainable practices and products and grow the confectionery category.”
