Since the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Mondelēz International – one of the world’s largest snacks companies – has been committed to supporting organisations responding to food instability and emergency relief by making $15 million in financial and in-kind donations through Mondelēz International Foundation.
In Vietnam, Mondelez Kinh Do Vietnam has donated more than 2,500 cases of products to health workers and government agencies to support COVID-19 relief and response efforts.
The products have been delivered to the Hung Yen Fatherland Front Committee, Binh Duong Preventive Medical Centre, the Hospital for Tropical Diseases Ho Chi Minh City, and other organisations through AmCham’s activities in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

A part of the supporting programme was also dedicated to blood donors, since donating blood is more important than ever during the time of the pandemic.
As concerns around the spread of the coronavirus continue to increase, Mondelez Kinh Do Vietnam has committed to maintaining operations to ensure the supply of its essential food products to its customers at this challenging time.
“In this time of heightened need, we are working in close collaboration with customers and the local authorities to ensure that guidelines are followed and met at our production lines to maintain stable operation. Through this, our distribution networks continue to work efficiently and consumers have access to food on the supermarket shelves,” said Hemant Rupani, managing director of Mondelez Kinh Do Vietnam.

Together with maintaining the production, distribution, and availability of its most loved brands such as Kinh Do, Cosy, Solite, AFC, LU, Oreo, and Ritz, the company has successfully introduced the new product Fresh Pizza Bun amidst the heightened demands for healthy and convenient food. The new product received very positive feedback from consumers.
