Snacks and confections manufacturer Mondelez International told Reuters last week that its Oreo cookie production plant in Trostyanets, Ukraine was damaged by military activities in the country.

The facility closed shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine. A company statement emailed to Reuters said no workers were injured in the incident, while noting that telecommunications interruptions in the area are making it difficult for Mondelez to contact its local employees.

“We continue to prioritize the safety of our people and our operations remain closed in Ukraine,” Mondelez said in a statement on the conflict published March 9. The company also pledged to “scale back all non-essential activities in Russia” while continuing to preserve the country’s food supply.

Mondelez has operated in the Ukrainian market since 1994, information on the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine website states. About 1,100 people work for its local affiliate Mondelez Ukraina.
