Now you can buy your ketchup and Cheez Whiz from the same company.
On Wednesday, Kraft Foods Group and H.J. Heinz Co. announced they would merge to form the world's fifth largest food company. In addition to creating a massive global food conglomerate, this combination will put an absurd number of household brands under the same roof. Below, we've compiled an image of all the brands the new Kraft Heinz Company will own.
If it seems like we're missing a few Kraft staples, like Oreos, Ritz, and Tang, that's because those products were consolidated into a new company, Mondelēz International, when Kraft spun off its snack business from its North American grocery business in 2012. Because of that spinoff, exactly who owns what is a little confusing. For example, both Kraft and Mondelez include Philadelphia cream cheese on their brand pages, possibly because of a royalty agreement between the two corporations. In compiling our image, we used any brand listed by Kraft or Heinz on their respective websites.
