“From product inception to recipe development, each step of the Véa journey has been driven by the needs of ‘food explorers,’ those seeking new experiences in all aspects of their life, including adventures in food,” said Jason Levine, vice-president of marketing, Mondelez International. “With Véa, we stepped outside of our traditional innovation model and introduced an entirely new snack option with authenticity, speed and a global mindset.”
Véa products are Non-GMO Project verified and contain no artificial colors or flavors. The range was developed for millennial consumers, 81% of whom said they enjoy exploring new cultures through food, according to the company.
Mondelez executives unveiled the platform in February at the Consumer Analyst Group of New York annual conference. Véa builds on the success of Good Thins, a line of baked snacks the company launched over a year ago. That product line generated approximately $70 million in sales in nine months, said Tim Cofer, chief growth officer.“Véa truly underscores the best of what we’re doing across a wide range of growth capabilities, including breakthrough product and packaging innovation, real-time data analytics, comprehensive distribution across multiple growth channels and fearless digital marketing,” he said.
