Christine McGrath leads the global impact agenda that includes sustainability, well-being, and community involvement for Mondelēz International, one of the world’s largest snacking companies with brands like Oreo, Cadbury, and Milka. After her successful track record building brands and developing new products and growth platforms, McGrath now brings her extensive innovation experience to challenges like deforestation, climate change, obesity, mindful snacking, and women’s empowerment. In all of this work, she finds the connection that drives growth of the business and positive social impact. McGrath created and is responsible for Cocoa Life, Mondelēz International’s signature sustainability program, which is investing $400 million over 10 years in a holistic approach to lead the transformation of the cocoa supply chain through better farming practices, inclusive community empowerment, and forest conservation and restoration. Prior to her work at Mondelēz, she worked at Kraft Foods for more than 20 years in a marketing career that spanned base brand management and new product innovation. McGrath was named one of Fortune Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful Latinas in 2017 and 2018.
