Hindus Irked With Mondelēz Over Beef in its Snacks


Cadbury chocolates contained gelatin; which might be beef, pork, etc.


CHICAGO, IL – Hindus around the world are seeking an apology from Mondelēz International Inc., one of the world’s largest snacks companies” headquartered in Chicago, for non-disclosure of beef in some of its products. There is also a call for an immediate recall of all such items.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that it was shocking for Hindus to learn that some of its snacks/chocolates, which they had been eating for years, might contain beef while beef was not explicitly mentioned under the ingredients listed on the packages/boxes.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, stated that some of the products of the Mondelēz brands—Cadbury, Alpen Gold, Freia, Maynards Bassett’s, Milka, etc.—, but source of gelatin was not mentioned under the “Ingredients” on packages/boxes; which might be beef, pork, etc.

Consumption of beef is highly conflicting to Hindu beliefs.

Zed also urged Mondelēz CEO Dirk Van de Put to recall all food items containing gelatin were source of gelatin was not clearly mentioned.

Mondelēz has operations in over 80 countries and its net revenues in 2020 were reportedly about $27 billion.
