The relatively stable and low price of food in today’s system does not reflect its life-sustaining value. Mondelez International is a net-positive Humankind Value company, in large part due to its impact on Crop Production ($116.1 B) and Economic Value ($17.8 B). Its positive value associated with Crop Production annually is linked to an estimated 2,408,552.3 equivalent life years not lost to death or reduced quality of life. The company produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Mondelez International has room for improvement with respect to Food Loss (-$12.5 B) and Food Waste (-$9.8 B). Food Loss is attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Its Humankind Value based on Crop Production, Economic Value, Medical Services, and Food Waste is mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships. The direct Humankind Value for this firm, in a vacuum, is negative. But with our supply-chain methodology, a more complete and positive picture of its total impact can be seen.
