business news in context, analysis with attitude

Kraft Foods announced that it plans to increase prices on many of its products – ranging from cookies and crackers to Milk Bone dog biscuits and frozen pizzas by California Pizza kitchen.

Most of the increases take effect immediately, though some DSD items won’t see price hikes until the new year.

The company blames the price of oil – which has affected everything from transportation to packaging – for the price increases.
