Type of Organisation
Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG)
As the name suggests, the Kraft Heinz Company came into being following the merger of Kraft Foods Group and Heinz in 2015. Kraft was founded by a Canadian American cheese seller called James L. Kraft in 1903. By the time of the merger, it was a giant American food manufacturing and processing conglomerate headquartered in Chicago. Its products were sold in over 170 countries.
Heinz was founded by Pennsylvanian entrepreneur Henry J. Heinz in 1869. By the time of the merger it was, like Kraft, a behemoth, manufacturing food products on six continents and selling its famous brands – Golden Circle, Greenseas, Heinz, HP Sauce and Weight Watchers – across 200 countries. The merger resulted in a food industry leviathan with a commanding grip on the beverage, convenience food, dairy food and snack food industries.
Today, Kraft Heinz are one of the largest global food and beverage companies, with a portfolio that is a diverse mix of iconic and emerging brands. In 2019 we generated $25bn in net sales and have offices and sites based in over 40 countries. As the guardians of over 200 brands and the creators of innovative products, we're dedicated to the sustainable health of our people and our planet.
