pladis has an ambitious growth programme in local, developing and emerging markets, with innovation at its core.
pladis is home to iconic brands Godiva, McVitie’s and Ulker. These brands make sweet treats and savoury treats that consumers everywhere recognise and enjoy. As we start on our new journey, we will continue making the biscuits and confectionery people know and expect from these brands, and we will expand their portfolios too. Together we will create new and exciting products as the pladis family – new flavours, new concepts and new ways to share happiness.
Our strength is not only in our products, it is also in our people and our values. Each of the family businesses that have united to form pladis are admired for their heritage and values. We will retain the honesty, integrity and trust instilled in our brands by our pioneering founders as we embark on the next chapter of our success.
