OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Warren Buffett’s investments will soon include more foods that could be on a menu for his favorite cheeseburger meal once H.J. Heinz’s acquisition of Kraft Foods is complete.

Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, which owns roughly half of Heinz, will become the biggest shareholder in the new Kraft Heinz Co. in the deal announced Wednesday.

Buffett is famous for his simple tastes for cheeseburgers, steaks Coke and ice cream. Berkshire already owned Dairy Queen and Heinz, and it’s the biggest shareholder in Coca-Cola.

This deal will give him Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and A.1. Steak Sauce to accompany those meals, and it will create one of the largest food and beverage companies in the world.

Berkshire and its Heinz partner, Brazilian investment firm 3G Capital, will invest $10 billion in the deal.
