H. J. HEINZ COMPANY

Business Description


H. J. Heinz Company was incorporated in Pennsylvania on July 27, 1900. In 1905, it succeeded to the business of a partnership operating under the same name which had developed from a food business founded in 1869 at Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania by Henry J. Heinz. H. J. Heinz Company and its subsidiaries manufacture and market an extensive line of processed food products throughout the world. The Company's principal products include ketchup, condiments and sauces, frozen food, soups, beans and pasta meals, tuna and other seafood products, infant food and other processed food products.

The Company's products are manufactured and packaged to provide safe, wholesome foods for consumers, foodservice and institutional customers. Many products are prepared from recipes developed in the Company's research laboratories and experimental kitchens. Ingredients are carefully selected, washed, trimmed, inspected and passed on to modern factory kitchens where they are processed, after which the finished product is filled automatically into containers of glass, metal, plastic, paper or fiberboard which are then closed, processed, labeled and cased for market. Finished products are processed by sterilization, homogenization, chilling, freezing, pickling, drying, freeze drying, baking or extruding. Certain finished products and seasonal raw materials are aseptically packed into sterile containers after in-line sterilization.


The Company's products are sold through its own sales force and through independent brokers, agents and distributors to chain, wholesale, cooperative and independent grocery accounts, pharmacies, mass merchants, club stores, foodservice distributors and institutions, including hotels, restaurants and
certain government agencies.

The products of the Company are sold under highly competitive conditions, with many large and small competitors. The Company regards its principal competition to be other manufacturers of processed foods, including branded retail products, foodservice products and private label products, that compete with the Company for consumer preference, distribution, shelf space and merchandising support. Product quality and consumer value are important areas of competition.
