Title says it all, motherfuckers.
Say what? The odyssey of Kraft's new name - Yahoo! Finance
Apparently, shareholders are going to vote on this:
News Summary: Kraft to vote on new name 'Mondelez' - Yahoo! Finance
Do we have any Kraft shareholders up in this bitch?
Why in the world would you care what a company wants to name itself?
I find it rather strange.
Kraft has got to be one of the most recognized names in America...why would anyone want to change such a recognizable brand to something people can't pronounce?
I am thinking Kraft is about to have a "Coke moment".
I care because the name is so hilariously bone-headed, that's why.
Kraft will keep its name. As the story says, this is the proposed name for its global snack business. People won't equate the two.
Would you buy a bag of candy with Kraft on the label?
Ya wanna see something interesting? Kraft owned brands:
They're not changing any of their popular brand names, Kraft or others. They're simply reorganizing all of their international snacks into a separate company called Mondelez, but they're not, for example, renaming their Cadbury Creme Egg the Mondelez Creme Egg. Their customers the world over will continue to buy their products not knowing or caring about the company name they chose for their new business unit, and in many cases not even know Kraft is involved at all.
Aw sh*t ....okay okay...so I didn't read the article...and now I look like an idiot...
Separate names with a comma.
