Name That Com­pany

Austin American-Statesman Sunday - - PERSONAL FINANCE EXTRA -

I’m the prod­uct of a 2015 megamerger be­tween two com­pa­nies that trace their roots back to the late 1800s and ear­lier. To­day, head­quar­tered in Pitts­burgh and Chicago, I’m the world’s fifth-largest food and bev­er­age com­pany, with a mar­ket value re­cently near $100 bil­lion. I rake in more than $26 bil­lion an­nu­ally, with the help of eight brands that gen­er­ate more than $1 bil­lion an­nu­ally. I sport more than 200 brands, in­clud­ing Jell-O, Velveeta, Grey Poupon, Lunch­ables, Kool-Aid, Smart Ones, Ore-Ida, Os­car Mayer, Planters, Clas­sico and Maxwell House. I em­ploy peo­ple in more than 40 na­tions. Who am I?

Think you know the an­swer? We’ll an­nounce it in next week’s edi­tion.
