"This investment in India is part of our ongoing supply chain reinvention plan," said Daniel Myers, executive vice president of the company's Integrated Supply Chain. "We're implementing a number of initiatives around the world to capitalize on the growing demand in emerging markets while also aggressively reducing costs and improving productivity. We're pleased with our progress in the regions where we've already begun to invest."

Last September, Myers highlighted numerous initiatives to redesign the company's supply chain to deliver $1 billion in annual productivity savings over the next three years. The savings will be a primary driver of significant improvements in the company's base operating income margin in the near term.

"Over the last three years, we've invested nearly $200 million to expand existing operational facilities in India," said Manu Anand, president of Mondelez India and South Asia and managing director of Cadbury India. "We're delighted to partner with the government of Andhra Pradesh on this new investment, which will help us build on our success in India and drive long-term business sustainability. We expect this model plant to set examples in production efficiency, energy savings, emission reductions and community involvement."

Among the company's well-known brands are Oreo cookies, Tang beverages, trident gum and Cadbury chocolates.
