Why Kraft Foods Cares About Fair Trade Chocolate
September 14, 2012
With 23 years in the food industry, Chris McGrath is responsible for balancing the environmental, social and economic considerations across Kraft Foods’ global portfolio, helping to ensure that sustainability is a part of every business decision. Chris works with business teams around the world to reduce Kraft’s environmental global footprint and deliver Kraft’s sustainability commitments.
Last year the company laid out a plan to divide into two independent public companies–a North American grocery business, Kraft Foods Group, Inc., and a global snacks business, Mondelez International, Inc. McGrath will become Vice President for External Affairs at Mondelez International, with broad oversight for the new company’s sustainability, health & wellness and public affairs initiatives beginning October 1.
Among the Kraft brands are staples of many American children’s lunches: Oscar Mayer hot dogs and lunch meats, Capri Sun and Kool-Aid beverages, JELLO-O gelatin desserts, Nutter Butter and Oreo cookies.
