During the year ended December 31, 2022, the company continued to experience increased raw material and supply chain costs, including sourcing, logistics and manufacturing costs, largely due to inflationary pressures, compared to the prior year.

Kraft Heinz now expects these costs to continue to rise and inflation to remain elevated through 2023.

While these costs have a negative impact on its results of operations, the company is currently taking steps to mitigate, and expects to continue to take steps to mitigate, the impact of this inflation through pricing actions and efficiency gains.
