Mondelez International Inc (NASDAQ: MDLZ) is quite the dividend and growth combo stock, and is better positioned than the other major food stocks with robust international exposure The stock pays a dividend yield of 1.8% and could be undervalued by as much as 15%. Mondelez is the result of a 2012 division of Kraft Foods; Mondelez makes up the global snacks company and the spinoff, Kraft Foods Group, is the North American grocery segment.

    Mondelez reported fourth quarter and full year 2012 results reflecting solid organic revenue growth, and higher gross and operating margins. Organic revenues increased 4.4% year over year, while power brands, including Oreo and Cadbury, grew nearly double the company rate at 8.1%. Mondelez is still reaping the benefits of its 2010 Cadbury acquisition, where Cadbury has given Mondelez access to distribution networks in India, Brazil and Mexico, and is estimated to have saved the company $800 million in 2012 with similar savings expectations for future years.
