Aug. 3, 2018

PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Kraft Heinz Company reported second quarter 2018 financial results that reflected favorable impacts from acquisitions net of divestitures and currency, as well as higher input costs and increased investments to enhance capabilities. 

“Our results through the first half were stronger than the expectations we put forward as recently as three months ago, and we have been even more encouraged by our recent performance in the marketplace,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Bernardo Hees. “We believe we are now in a position to drive sustainable top-line growth from a strong pipeline of new product, marketing and whitespace initiatives that are backed by investments in capabilities for brand and category advantage. And while cost inflation on many fronts has been holding back our bottom line, we expect our profitability to improve by year-end, with further momentum into 2019.”
