“As one of Canada’s largest food manufacturers we have an important role to play in helping those in our local communities who are hit hardest by COVID-19. As a Montreal resident I am proud that we can support our local food bank to help provide food security, and bring a little joy to the people who need it most across the City,” said Martin Parent, President, Mondelēz Canada.
