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 January 30, 2008, Kraft Foods Inc., a Virginia corporation, issued a press release announcing earnings for the fourth-quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2007. 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 diluted 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 diluted 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 the sales of businesses, 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.

The attached press release includes non-GAAP financial measures because our 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. Our management uses non-GAAP financial information and measures internally for operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes.

Our 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 GAAP financial measures for the years ended December 31, 2007, and December 31, 2006 and quarters ended December 31, 2007, and December 31, 2006. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for our results which are prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures we use may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies
