Company Report

Wide-Moat Mondelez Continues to Adeptly Navigate Volatile Macro and Competitive Dynamics

Since taking the helm at Mondelez more than six years ago, CEO Dirk Van de Put has orchestrated a plan to drive balanced sales and profit growth by extending the distribution of its fare, fueling investments behind its local and global brands, empowering its local leaders, and increasing the agility with which it brings innovation to market (aims that are hitting the mark). Against this backdrop, Mondelez targets 3%-5% sales growth long term as it works to sell its wares in more channels and reinvests in new products aligned with consumer trends at home and abroad. Further, it has prudently made acquisitions of niche brands to build out its category and geographic exposure, and we anticipate it will continue to pursue inorganic targets when the opportunity arises.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Mondelez's strategic shift to empower in-market leaders and fuel investments in its local jewels (which had historically been starved in favor of its global brands) stands to incite growth in emerging markets for some time.

Bears

Management has conveyed that weakness within biscuits (particularly for Chips Ahoy) has constrained sales, as this segment is more exposed to private-label competition.

Company Profile

Mondelez has operated as an independent organization since its split from the former Kraft Foods North American grocery business in October 2012. The firm is a leading player in the global snack enclave with a presence in the biscuit (49% of sales), chocolate (30%), gum/candy (12%), beverage (3%), and cheese and grocery (6%) aisles, as of the end of fiscal 2023. Mondelez's portfolio includes well-known brands like Oreo, Chips Ahoy, Halls, and Cadbury, among others. The firm derives around one third of revenue from developing markets, just more than one third from Europe, and the remainder from North America.
