Who we are

Over a century ago, James L. Kraft and Henry J. Heinz each got his start by creating and selling a single product. For Kraft, it was cheese from the back of a cart. For Heinz, it was freshly grated horseradish in an unusual clear jar. These men didn’t grow up together, but the world grew up with the foods they made.

For 150 years, Kraft Heinz has produced some of the world’s most beloved products. We are one of the largest global food and beverage companies, with a portfolio that is a diverse mix of iconic and emerging brands. As the guardians of these brands and the creators of innovative products, we’re dedicated to the sustainable health of our people and our planet.

Here in the Netherlands and Belgium are especially proud of our local brands – we like to call them our local jewels. They have a rich history and are deeply rooted in the hearts and minds of our loyal consumers.
