Mondelez International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MDLZ) is an American multinational food, beverage and snack company based in Chicago. Mondelez operates in over 150 countries around the world. The company owns global and local brands such as OREO, belVita, LU biscuits, Cadbury, Chips Ahoy!, Ritz, Sour Patch Kids, Stride and Trident gum.

On Jan. 5, Mondelez announced its completed acquisition of Hu Master Holdings. Hu Master Holdings is the parent company of Hu Products, a US-based snacking company. The company made an initial minority investment in Hu in April of 2019 through SnackFutures, its innovation and venture hub. This minority investment in Hu granted Mondelez a right of first offer to acquire the company. On Jan. 4, Mondelez successfully acquired 100% ownership of the brand. The financial terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.
