Kraft Heinz Canada - New Headquarters - 2023

Kraft Heinz is on a journey of transformation and part of this plan is to move our Global HQs back into city centers. It is time for Toronto to shine with a Canadian innovation and talent hub that reflects our unique people & food culture. After 40 years at the Don Mills location, the Kraft Heinz Canada headquarters will move to the Queen’s Quay Terminal (QQT) at 207 Queen’s Quay West. Roles currently based out of the Don Mills office will move to Queen’s Quay upon its opening in Spring-Summer 2023. We are thrilled to be moving to this vibrant, waterfront location in close proximity to public transportation. We are taking the design of our new workplace to the next level with modern furnishings, amenities, spacious co-working areas and a state-of-the-art Kitchen, putting Food at the heart of the overall employee experience. Flexible work is here to stay, and we need a space that will keep the pace. Modern technology will enhance our experience both at home and in the office. Having all of us together in our new vibrant space will deliver a rich, team-focused, agile experience that promotes connection, communication, collaboration and transparency.
