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 August 4, 2009, Kraft Foods Inc., a Virginia corporation, issued a press release announcing earnings for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009. A copy of the earnings press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).

Our top-line guidance measure is organic net revenues, which excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and currency. We use 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 to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. We believe it is appropriate to disclose this measure to help investors analyze segment performance and trends. Segment operating income excludes unrealized gains and losses on hedging activities (which are a component of cost of sales), certain components of our U.S. pension plan cost (which is a component of cost of sales and marketing, administration and research costs), general corporate expenses (which are a component of marketing, administration and research costs) and amortization of intangibles for all periods presented. In 2009, we began excluding certain components of our U.S. pension plan cost from segment operating income because we centrally manage pension plan funding decisions, and determine discount rate, expected rate of return on plan assets and other actuarial assumptions. Therefore, we allocate only the service cost component of our U.S. pension plan expense to segment operating income. We exclude the unrealized gains and losses on hedging activities from segment operating income to provide better transparency of our segment operating results. Once realized, the gains and losses on hedging activities are recorded within segment operating results. Accordingly, we do not present these items by segment because they are excluded from the segment profitability measure that management reviews. Additionally, “certain commodity hedging activities” include the timing impacts of realized gains and losses on commodity hedges that were intended to cover transactions outside of the current quarter.

Our five-year Restructuring Program, which ended in 2008, included asset impairment, exit and implementation costs. Implementation costs are directly attributable to exit costs; however, they do not qualify for exit cost treatment under U.S. GAAP. Management believes this disclosure provides better transparency into the total costs of our Restructuring Program.

We use discretionary cash flow as our primary cash flow metric as it represents the controllable cash flows from operations. For the six months ended June 30, 2009, discretionary cash flow was $1,446 million, and is defined as cash flow from operations ($1,720 million) less capital expenditures ($474 million) plus voluntary pension contributions ($200 million). Management believes it shows the financial health of and how efficiently we are running the company.

See the schedules attached to our earnings press release for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to certain GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended June 30, 2009 and 2008. 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 2009 Outlook, we have not provided that information. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures we use may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
