Oreo, owned by Mondelez International since 2012, is more “woke” than many Americans may have thought.
According to their website, which has many reminders they support gay rights and the LBGTQ community, just released a new movie-style ad video showing an Asian male coming out to what appears to be his Asian mother
“For over 100 years, OREO has been bringing families together.
That’s why we launched a partnership with PFLAG, the country’s oldest LGBTQ+ ally organization, to create #ProudParent, a year-long initiative designed to shine a spotlight on the powerful impact love & acceptance can have on LGBTQ+ youth. Together we’re committed to empowering and inspiring parents, families, and allies to come out in loud, public support.”

Oreo is also a proud supporter of the group PFLAG, which was founded in 1973 by a mother who supported her son coming out as gay. The organization supports individuals and families of the gay and LGBTQ community.
According to their website, “PFLAG is the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents and families, and allies. With nearly 400 chapters and 250,000 members and supporters crossing multiple generations of families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas across America, PFLAG is committed to creating a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed.”
The parent company of Oreo, Mondelēz International which has offerings in 150 countries and is the largest snack company in the world, also owns popular brands like Belvita, Cadbury, Chips Ahoy, Ritz, Tang, Triscuits, Trident, and Wheat Thins, to name a few.
