What’s the company’s position on the tariffs and what is it doing in response?

As a global food company, Kraft Heinz opposes trade policies that impose taxes or tariffs on our products. NAFTA has been in place for more than 20 years and we have developed supply chains that run across North America. We are opposed to any change that impacts our ability to seamlessly move our products across these borders.

We are engaging with governments on both sides of the border with the hope of finding a resolution.

Does Kraft Heinz produce products in Leamington, Ontario?

Yes, we work closely with Leamington’s Highbury Canco and are one of the plant’s biggest customers. Highbury produces more than 70,000 metric tons of Heinz Beans, Heinz Tomato juice and Classico pasta sauces each year. That’s more than half the weight of the CN Tower and approximately $412MM worth of our product. They also employ more than five hundred people that work on Kraft Heinz brands everyday. We also continue to operate our Heinz Tomato Seed business out of Leamington, which supplies most of the processing tomato seeds used on farms in Eastern North America.
