Although the name Nabisco is well-known, Mondelez International, the parent business that owns Nabisco, is less well-known. The world’s largest bakery, Nabisco’s 1.8 million square foot facility in Chicago, Illinois, employs 1,500 people to create its goods. The facility produces more than 320 million pounds of snacks annually.
The company’s origins date back to 1792, when Pearson & Sons of Massachusetts started making pilot bread, a biscuit that could be transported on lengthy maritime voyages. Nearly a century later, William Moore acquired the bakery and changed its name to the New York Biscuit Company, reserving the name Nabisco for a sugar wafer that the business began making in 1901.
