Mondelez International: Industrial laundry ensures clean clothing
Mondelez International is a global manufacturer of food products operating in 165 countries. It is the leading manufacturer of chocolate, biscuits, sweets, coffee and drink mixes whose brands include Milka chocolates, Jacobs coffee, LU biscuits, Tang drink mixes and Trident gum.
Processes related to workwear matters
In the food processing industry, hygienic workwear is vitally important. The laundry quality must be good and the transport and storage must ensure that no contaminants find their way onto the workwear. The process related to workwear management must be smooth and efficient.
Previously, Mondelez spent a lot of time in clothing administration, laundry quality varied and there were great losses. The employees often had to queue for clean workwear for a long time and the size was not always right.
Improving the hygiene level and everyday life at work
Mondelez decided to use Lindström’s Workwear Services at all of its five food processing plants in different parts of India: Mumbai, Gwalior, Baddi, Bangalore and Pune. Lindström’s Workwear Services have improved the hygiene level of the plants. The laundry quality is good and the clothing is delivered directly to lockers so that no contaminants are transferred from the employees’ own clothing.
The service has also made the everyday life of the employees easier since shift changes are more efficient. Clean clothing of the right size awaits in the locker and, at the end of the shift, it is very convenient to put it in the laundry box. The clothing is washed according to requirements and damage is repaired.
“The secret of our success is that we offer comprehensive services for the management of workwear. It corresponds to the modern plant’s quality and service level requirements,” says Business Unit Manager Manish Lodha of Lindström India.
