(1) At February 1, 2006, the accredited service is 17.7 years for Mr. Deromedi, 2.4 years for Mr. Firestone, 19.7 years for Mr. Johnson, and 30.7 years for Mr. Roberts.

Mr. Deromedi, Mr. Firestone, Mr. Johnson, and Mr. Roberts participate in the tax-qualified Kraft Foods Retirement Plan and a non-qualified supplemental pension plan. These plans provide for fixed retirement benefits in relation to the participant's years of accredited service, five-year average annual compensation (the highest average annual compensation during any period of five full consecutive years out of the 10 years preceding retirement) and applicable Social Security covered compensation amount. The fixed retirement benefit is also dependent upon the periods of service before January 1, 1989 (for former Kraft Foods Inc. participants) or January 1, 1991 (for former General Foods Corporation participants) in which the participant elected to make contributions. Allowances are payable upon retirement at the normal retirement age of 65 and upon satisfaction of certain conditions at earlier ages. Annual compensation includes the amount shown as annual salary and bonus in the Summary Compensation Table. At December 31, 2005, five-year average annual compensation was $2,042,347 for Mr. Deromedi; $938,672 for Mr. Firestone; $954,808 for Mr. Johnson; and $803,732 for Mr. Roberts. Mr. Firestone's final average compensation includes compensation earned as an employee of Philip Morris International Inc.

The above table provides examples of annual pension benefits payable under these plans. The examples, which assume retirement at the normal retirement age of 65, are based on the Social Security-covered compensation amount in effect for an employee attaining age 65 in calendar year 2006. Since participant contributions could be

substantial in individual cases, the benefit amounts shown in the table may be attributed in certain instances to participant contributions to a significant degree, depending upon retirement date and years of service.

In recognition of Mr. Deromedi's promotion to Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and in connection with his previous pension benefit earned at General Foods Corporation, the Company has agreed to use his final average earnings at retirement for purposes of calculating this benefit. Based on his year-end 2005 salary and his annual bonus amount paid in 2005, and assuming retirement from the Company at age 65, he would receive an annual non-qualified supplemental benefit payable as a single life annuity of $510,256. This benefit is in addition to the Kraft Foods Inc. Retirement Plan benefits reflected in the table above.

In prior years, the Company has made available funding payments to certain executives, including Mr. Deromedi, with vested accrued benefits under non-qualified supplemental retirement plans. These amounts offset benefits previously accrued and are not intended to increase total promised benefits.
