    Origin of the firm

    Kraft Foods traced its roots to the Na­tional Dairy Prod­ucts Cor­po­ra­tion, formed on De­cem­ber 10, 1923, by Thomas H. McInnerney. The firm was ini­tially set up to ex­e­cute on a rollup strat­egy in the frag­mented United States ice cream in­dus­try. Through ac­qui­si­tions it ex­panded into a full range of dairy prod­ucts. By 1930 it was the largest dairy com­pany in the United States and the world, ex­ceed­ing Bor­den. McIn­ner­ney op­er­ated the Hy­drox Cor­po­ra­tion, an ice cream com...

    Beginnings for Kraft

    Born in Stevensville, On­tario, Canada in 1874, James L. Kraft im­mi­grated to the United States in 1903 and started a whole­sale door-to-door cheese busi­ness in Chicago; its first year of op­er­a­tions was "dis­mal", los­ing US$3,000 and a horse. How­ever, the busi­ness took hold and Kraft was joined by his four broth­ers to form J.L. Kraft and Bros. Companyin 1909. As early as 1911, cir­cu­lars and ad­ver­tise­ments were in use by the company. In 1912, the com­pany es­tab­lished its New Yo...

    Post National acquisition of Kraft-Phenix

    At the time of the ac­qui­si­tion in 1930, Na­tional Dairy had sales of $315m com­pared with $85m for Kraft Phenix. Na­tional Dairy man­age­ment ran the com­bined busi­ness. Fol­low­ing the Kraft-Phenix ac­qui­si­tion, the firm con­tin­ued to be called Na­tional Dairy until 1969 when it changed its name to Kraftco. His­tor­i­cally, all of the firm's sales came from dairy prod­ucts. How­ever, the firm's prod­uct lines began to di­ver­sify away from dairy prod­ucts to caramel can­dies, mac­a­ro...

    Kraft Foods Inc was an of­fi­cial part­ner and spon­sor of Major League Soc­cer and spon­sored the Kraft Nabisco Cham­pi­onship, one of the four "ma­jors" on the LPGA tour. The com­pany also spon­sored the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, a post-sea­son col­lege foot­ball bowl game. Kraft Hock­eyville orig­i­nally was Cana­dian re­al­ity tele­vi­sion se­ries de­vel­oped by CBC Sports in 2006 and was spon­sored by Kraft Foods in which com­mu­ni­ties across Canada com­pete to demon­strate their com­mit­ment to the sport of ice hockey. The con­test re­volves around a cen­tral theme of com­mu­nity spirit in Canada. In 2007, the con­test was rel­e­gated to seg­ments aired on Hockey Night in Canada Kraft re­leased an iPad app called "Big Fork Lit­tle Fork" in 2011 which, in ad­di­tion to games and other dis­trac­tions, has in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing how to use Kraft foods in nu­tri­tious ways.This app costs $1.99; a ver­sion for home com­put­ers is avail­able on the iTunes app store.

    Be­fore the com­pany was split, its core busi­nesses were in bev­er­age, cheese, dairy foods, snack foods, con­fec­tionery, and con­ve­nience foods.

    Trans-fat litigation

    In 2003, a Cal­i­for­nia lawyer made na­tional head­lines by suing Kraft for using trans fat in Oreo cookies.Kraft foods an­nounced a trans-fat free re­for­mu­la­tion of Oreos shortly after the 2003 law­suit was filed, and the law­suit was dropped. Kraft de­nied that the change was made in re­sponse to the law­suit, not­ing that the re­for­mu­la­tion had been in plan­ning long be­fore the lawsuit. In 2010, two Cal­i­for­nia res­i­dents filed a class ac­tion law­suit against Kraft Foods for cl...

    Political campaign

    In 2012, Kraft con­tributed $1,950,500 to a $46 mil­lion po­lit­i­cal cam­paign known as "The Coali­tion Against The Costly Food La­bel­ing Propo­si­tion, spon­sored by Farm­ers and Food Producers" The or­ga­ni­za­tion was founded to op­pose Propo­si­tion 37, a Cal­i­for­nia cit­i­zen's ini­tia­tive man­dat­ing the la­bel­ing of foods con­tain­ing ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied in­gre­di­ents. As a re­sult, there were calls for a boy­cott of Kraft products.

    Environmental record

    For years Kraft pur­chased paper for its pack­ag­ing from Asia Pulp & Paper, the third-largest paper pro­ducer in the world which was called a "for­est crim­i­nal" for de­stroy­ing "pre­cious habi­tat" in In­done­sia's rain forest. In 2011, when Kraft can­celled its con­tract with Asia Pulp & Paper, Green­peace ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Phil Rad­fordcom­mended the com­pany for "tak­ing rain­for­est con­ser­va­tion seriously".

    Kraft began a major re­struc­tur­ing process in Jan­u­ary 2004, fol­low­ing a year of de­clin­ing sales (blamed largely on the ris­ing health con­scious­ness of Amer­i­cans) and the sack­ing of co-CEO Betsy Holden. The com­pany an­nounced clo­sures of 19 pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties world­wide and the re­duc­tion of 5,500 jobs, as well as the sale of 10% of its branded prod­ucts. On Jan­u­ary 19, 2010, Kraft sealed the deal to buy 100% of the share cap­i­tal of Cad­bury for over $19 billion. On March 17, 2010, Kraft Foods said it was "truly sorry" over its clo­sure of a Cad­bury fac­tory in Somerdale. Se­nior Kraft ex­ec­u­tive Marc Fire­stone made the pub­lic apol­ogy to MPs at a par­lia­men­tary se­lect com­mit­tee hearing. In March 2011, in the US, Kraft Foods in­tro­duced MiO, a liq­uid fla­vor­ing prod­uct with zero calo­ries and sugar-free geared to 18 to 39-year-old consumers.MiO has no ar­ti­fi­cial fla­vors but it does have ar­ti­fi­cial col­ors, ar­ti­fi­cial sweet­en­ers an...

    In Sep­tem­ber 2000, up to $50 mil­lion worth of taco shells were re­called by Kraft from su­per­mar­kets and Taco Bell restau­rants. The shells con­tained ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied corn, which was not ap­proved for human con­sump­tion by the Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion; the re­call was the first of a ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied food. The corn was sup­plied to a plant from which Kraft bought the shells. In April 2009, Kraft Foods re­called prod­ucts con­tain­ing pis­ta­chios after the dis­cov­ery of sal­mo­nella at one of its Illi­nois man­u­fac­tur­ers. Kraft pin­pointed as the source a Cal­i­for­nia pis­ta­chio grower, which ini­tially re­called over 2,000,000 pounds (910,000 kg) of nuts be­fore broad­en­ing the re­call to much of its 2008 crop. A Wash­ing­ton Posted­i­to­r­ial cred­ited the "ag­gres­sive food safety sys­tem at Kraft Foods" with ef­fec­tively ad­dress­ing the danger. In Sep­tem­ber 2011, Kraft re­called over 130,000 cases of Velveeta Shells and Cheese mi­crowav...
