The Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC) last posted its earnings results on Wednesday, November 1st.

Reported sales of $6.31 billion fell marginally shy of the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $6.32 billion by 0.1%. The Kraft Heinz had a net margin of 14.67% and a return on equity of 7.52%.

The 0.3% dip in United States revenue, however, compared to rises for other packaged food companies and came at a time when the firm is struggling with the shift by consumers and retailers away from its processed food toward fresh produce. Its US business turned over $4.38 billion - down 0.4% on past year, despite growth in its Lunchables and P3 brands as well as gains in foodservice.

"... The change in the retail landscape is not something new", said Georges El-Zoghbi, strategic adviser for The Kraft Heinz Co., during the call.

The business also recently declared a quarterly dividend, which will be paid on Friday, December 15th.

Rest of World Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 2.7 percent versus the year-ago period to $149 million, despite an unfavorable 3.7 percentage point impact from currency.

Despite these challenges, Kraft Heinz's leadership expressed optimism that the food giant, headquartered in both Chicago and Pittsburgh, can adapt quickly to the changing retail landscape and stay relevant in all channels, as CEO Bernardo Hees put it on a November 1 earnings call with analysts.

KHC has been the topic of several analyst reports. Notably, the company's shares decreased 1.5% in after-hours trading on Nov 1, in response to weaker sales results. Susquehanna Bancshares Inc reissued a "hold" rating and issued a $84.00 price target on shares of The Kraft Heinz in a report on Thursday, September 14th.
