In this video, ABC 7 News in Chicago gives an inside look into the new Mars Global Research and Development Hub.

The 44,000-sq.-ft., facility will be dedicated to chocolate and nut testing, research, and innovation. Recipes will be perfected in small batches in the plant’s contemporary test kitchen, while the flexible bar line, which mimics factory conditions, will allow Mars Snacking scientists to hone the process of bringing new products to scale.

The facility will be powered 100% with renewable energy, which is fossil-fuel free, and covered by renewable energy credits from Mars’ wind farm in Ford Ridge, IL.
