The chain was further bought by Consolidated Foods Corporation (in 1956), which, as a result of Kitchens of Sara Lee’s increasing popularity (to the extent of becoming one of the company’s most well-known brands), decided to change its corporate name to Sara Lee Corporation in the year 1985. Currently, the company’s products are sold in more than 180 countries around the world.

Sara Lee Corporation holds sustainability as an integral part of its business strategy based on the constant implementation and development of a sustainable platform through a specially designed, global Sustainability Working Team (SWT).
