Mondelēz International has joined forces with engineering company 3P innovation to help produce thousands of medical visors every day to protect front line NHS staff. We are repurposing our 3D printing technology (which is normally used to make chocolate sculptures at Bournville, the home of Cadbury) to help print the medical visors.
One of our facilities in Reading has also repurposed their production line to produce and donate hand sanitizer for Age UK and other community groups in need.
These initiatives follow those of years gone by. In the 1940s we set up Bournville Utilities Ltd to help make gas masks, jerricans, service respirators and aeroplane parts for Spitfires and Lancaster Bombers during WWII.
