Long Description:
According to Wikipedia :

"Kraft Foods Inc. (NYSE: KFT) is an American multinational confectionery, food and beverage conglomerate. It markets many brands in more than 170 countries."

Kraft Canada in Montreal manufactures all the products that you see in my picture : peanut butter, jam, Kraft Dinner, different kinds of cheese, Miracle Whip and sauces, etc...

Here is a brief history of the beginnings of the company. James Lewis Kraft, born in 1874 in Ontario(known as J.L.) began his working life as a sales clerk in a country general store. In 1903, Mr. Kraft moved to Chicago and he entered the wholesale cheese business. Using a rented wagon and horse Mr. Kraft bought cheeses daily from Chicago’s warehouse district and delivered them to local merchants. When his business prospered, he expanded it to include manufacturing. Mr. Kraft was on the brink of revolutionizing cheese manufacturing, not only in Chicago, but around the world.
Product manufactured here: Kraft Peanut Butter (among others)

Address:
8600 Devonshire Ch.
