Mondelez has seen "extraordinary growth" in India in recent years

Mondelez International, the owner of Cadbury and Toblerone chocolate, is to expand its chocolate production in India.

CFO David Brearton said Mondelez did not have the capacity in India to meet the demand for its chocolate.

"In India, our challenge is keeping up with demand for our chocolate," Brearton said. "We've run into capacity constraints after posting extraordinary growth over the past couple of years. We're driving productivity and removing bottlenecks at existing plants to stretch current capacity. And we expect new production lines to come on stream by the middle of next year."

Mondelez's Cadbury arm is the dominant force in India's chocolate market, where it accounts for over half the market.
