Snack food giant Mondelez International recently announced that it had entered a global agreement with YouTube as part of its plan for increased digital media spending.
Mondelez has committed to shifting 10% of its ad budgets to online video in 2014, and the YouTube agreement is officially its largest ever when it comes to digital media.
“We believe video will be a key growth driver for our brands, and programmatic buying will play an important role in accelerating that growth,” said
While this looks like a big competitive win for Google, it should be noted that Mondelez also struck a similar, if smaller deal with Google’s arch ad rival Facebook back in March, spanning 52 countries.
