HJ Heinz Co
Heinz's earned $242.3 million, or 76 cents per share, in its fiscal third quarter, ended January 28, compared with $218.5 million, or 68 cents a share, a year earlier.
The world's largest ketchup maker said revenue fell 7.5 percent to $2.41 billion, hurt by the stronger dollar.
Heinz still expects earnings of $2.87 to $2.91 a share for the fiscal year, and organic sales to grow about 6 percent.
