Mondelēz International is planning to invest $122.5 million in its Henrico County, Va., supply chain operations over the next three years. The investment includes a 68,000-sq-ft expansion of its Richmond Biscuit Bakery, which will support the company’s Richmond manufacturing operations and enable the site to house a high-speed, modern Oreo production line. Near the Richmond Biscuit Bakery, the company will be opening a new sales fulfillment center, which will support Mondelēz sales and distribution in the U.S. Scheduled to open next year, the center will create approximately 80 new jobs.

“We are excited about these further investments in our U.S. biscuit network and the opportunity to reaffirm and enhance the role of our Richmond manufacturing site, as well as our broader supply chain and business footprint here in Henrico County and in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” says Troy Ellis, Mondelēz International senior vice president of North America supply chain. “Our Richmond Biscuit Bakery has been a proud part of our company’s operations for nearly five decades and is geographically well-situated as the hub for our East Coast U.S. biscuit manufacturing. As we focus on leading the future of snacking, our presence in Henrico County continues to play an important part in us creating a best-in-class integrated supply chain, which supports our U.S. business both now and for the future.”
“Mondelēz has been making quality products in Henrico for nearly 50 years,” says Henrico County Board of Supervisors Member Tyrone E. Nelson. “Our county is grateful for the company’s continued commitment to Eastern Henrico, and we are excited about its investment in advanced manufacturing that will serve tens of millions of Americans.”
