Mondelez International opened a new $30 million state-of-the-art chocolate production line here to capitalize on growing demand in its European confectionery business.

"We strongly believe in the growth opportunities in Europe's snacking market," said Jürgen Leiße, president of Central Europe, Mondelez International.

"This Line of the Future is a big step forward, not only for Skarbimierz plant but also for the whole European snacking market," said Roman Sitko, Manufacturing Director.

Skarbimierz's new Line of the Future increases capacity, operates more efficiently and offers greater flexibility through its modular design. This new line is a first within the company's manufacturing network in Poland and only the second in Central Europe.

The investment will support the growth aspirations of the company's chocolate and biscuit categories by enabling production of innovative snacking product formats for favorite brands such as Milka, Oreo, Cadbury and Terry's Chocolate Orange, as well as the beloved local Polish brand 3Bit.

The investment brings modern technical solutions and improved safety standards to the plant to support an increase in production volume and up to 90 new positions.
