Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

This information shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

On July 28, 2008, Kraft Foods Inc., a Virginia corporation, issued a press release announcing earnings for the second-quarter ended June 30, 2008. A copy of the earnings press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

The company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company is presenting various operating results, such as operating income, operating income margin, effective tax rate, net earnings and earnings per share (“EPS”) on both a reported basis and on a basis excluding items that affect comparability of results. When the company uses operating results, such as operating income, operating income margin, effective tax rate, net earnings and EPS, excluding items, they are considered non-GAAP financial measures. The term “items” includes asset impairment, exit and implementation costs primarily related to a restructuring program that began in the first quarter of 2004 (the “Restructuring Program”). These restructuring charges include separation-related costs, asset write-downs, and other costs related to the implementation of the Restructuring Program. Other excluded items pertain to asset impairment charges on certain long-lived assets, gains and losses on divestitures, interest from tax reserve transfers from Altria Group, Inc., the favorable resolution of Altria Group, Inc.’s 1996-1999 IRS Tax Audit in 2006, and other one-time costs related to the company’s European Union segment reorganization.

Management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures and corresponding ratios provide additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. More specifically, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures reflect fundamental business performance because they exclude certain items that affect comparability of results.

The company’s top-line guidance measure is organic net revenues, which excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and currency. The company uses organic net revenues and corresponding growth ratios as non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes this measure better reflects revenues on a going-forward basis and provides improved comparability of results.

Management uses segment operating income and segment operating income excluding items to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. Beginning in the second quarter of 2008, the company began excluding unrealized gains and losses on hedging activity from segment operating income in order to provide better transparency of its segment operating results. Segment operating income now excludes unrealized gains and losses on hedging activity (which is a component of cost of sales), general corporate expenses and amortization of intangibles for all periods presented. Management believes it is appropriate to disclose this measure to help investors analyze segment performance and trends.

The attached press release includes non-GAAP financial measures because management uses this information to monitor and evaluate our operating results and trends on an on-going basis and to facilitate internal comparison to historical operating results. Management uses non-GAAP financial information and measures internally for operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes.

Management believes the non-GAAP information is useful for investors by offering them the ability to facilitate comparisons to historical operating results, better identify trends in our business, and better understand how management evaluates our business. These non-GAAP measures have limitations, however, because they do not include all items of income and expense that affect us. See the schedules attached to our earnings release as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to certain GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007. Because GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are neither accessible nor deemed to be significantly different, and reconciling information is not available without unreasonable effort, with regard to the non-GAAP financial measures in our 2008 outlook, we have not provided that information. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company’s results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures the company is using may differ from non-GAAP measures that other companies use.
