Taking the helm of Heinz from his father, Howard continued to build the company through internal growth and development. He deftly managed the company through the Depression by introducing low cost, processed food products including Heinz baby food and “ready to serve” soups. Through the formation of the Howard Heinz Foundation, he ensured a lasting legacy for the family business.
