In 1981, Nabisco merged with Planters Nuts producer, Standard Brands, to form Nabisco Brands, Inc. That company was purchased by R.J. Reynolds in 1985, creating RJR Nabisco. The company traded hands two more times before it was acquired by The Philip Morris Companies in 2000. By the time Philip Morris spun off it's Kraft Foods unit in 2007, Nabisco had become a unit of Kraft Foods.
Nabisco now operates as a subsidiary of Kraft Foods.
