H. J. Heinz Co.: The Pittsburgh-based food products company said profit jumped 13% to $103 million in the third quarter, due to higher sales volume--which increased 9% to $1.4 billion--as well as price increases and acquisitions. “Higher volume, particularly in the domestic market, led our sales growth,” the company said. Heinz packs and sells an extensive line of canned foods under Heinz, Star-Kist, 9-Lives and Ore-Ida labels.
