According to a spokesperson from Mondelez International Inc., its plant in Trostyanets, a town in eastern Ukraine, has suffered significant damage because of military actions. The company added that to the best of its knowledge, no employees were injured so far.
The Oreo plant - one of at least two Mondelez factories in Ukraine, according to Mondelez employees - was closed as soon as the war began, Mondelez said in an emailed statement.
Mondelez, which makes Milka chocolate and other locally-branded biscuits in Europe, said telecommunications outages in the Trostyanets area have made it challenging to reach all of its employees. Despite all this, Mondelez has plans to reopen the damaged potato-chip plant outside Kyiv The company is also working with Ukrainian authorities to resupply water and power to the area and is donating wheat and sugar to local non-governmental organizations.
