Mondelez International Inc. officially opened its new 450,000-square-foot fulfillment and distribution center in Henrico County. The snack maker’s new building is part of a $122.5 million investment into its Henrico County operations.
The company is the maker of popular snacks like Oreo cookies, Ritz crackers, Chips Ahoy! and Sour Patch Kids.
The 450,000-square-foot center in Henrico is split between spaces that are controlled for climate and humidity and ambient space. The new building brings 80 new jobs with it and will help reinforce the company’s cookie and cracker bakery located off Laburnum Avenue. That plant primarily produces cookie and cracker products like Oreo and Ritz.
