Mondelez will expand its sustainable wheat cultivation program, Harmony, to increase the share of sustainably produced biscuits in Hungary, in the Székesfehérvár factory, Hungary Today reports. Mondelez produces around 16,000 tons of biscuits a year in this factory.
Mondelez pledged that all its biscuit brands in Europe will be made from wheat grown under its sustainable wheat farming program, Harmony, by the end of 2022. Last year, 91% were made from raw materials produced under the Sustainable Wheat Program. By the end of this year, it is expected to be the standard practice for all biscuits produced in Hungary, including Győri Édes products, according to a statement.
The Harmony Program was established in France more than 10 years ago. It promotes biodiversity and good environmental practices in European wheat production. Today, more than 1,500 farmers and 18 mills in Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Poland, Italy, Spain, and Hungary are participating in Harmony. The first Harmony wheat was sown in Hungary in 2019 and harvested in July 2020.
