Heinz Tomato Ketchup made its debut a few years later, standing out with its rich, thick taste. Heinz Mustard and Heinz Relish soon followed. These condiments have been preferred by your guests for generations, weaving into their personal histories, from family picnics and backyard cookouts to after-school snacks and Sunday suppers. You can’t beat that kind of brand loyalty—one that boasts a love story that’s lasted 150 years. And counting.

When H.J. Heinz started the Heinz Company, his mission was to “do common things
uncommonly well.” He didn’t just want people to taste his products’ quality
he wanted them to see it. For Heinz Barbecue Sauce, he used transparent jars instead
of the brown opaque bottles commonly used at the time. Heinz did this to showcase
his products’ quality and purity.
Condiments are the unsung heroes of both the back of house and the tabletop.
His dedication to doing things uncommonly well has ensured that the name Heinz
is associated with quality, variety and good taste.

The farmers who grow Heinz tomatoes, many of whom
done so for generations, are committed to the
highest standard of quality. Heinz
knows the
ketchup on your table is only as good as
the tomato it comes from.

The tomatoes grown for Heinz Ketchup are
second to none. The superior taste and quality
of Heinz Ketchup starts with its tomatoes. The
brand’s farmers grow tomatoes from proprietary
, which yield the best sweetness and
generate the perfect thickness in each bottle of
Heinz Ketchup.

Heinz cross-pollinates plants with the specific
qualities it looks for, such as superior taste and
disease resistance, to grow the ideal hybrid
tomato. Seeds from these hybrids are then used
to grow the next crop of tomatoes for Heinz’s
famous ketchup. Unlike genetically modified
organisms, commonly called GMOs, Heinz
Ketchup tomatoes are bred for perfection the
same way H.J. Heinz did when he began making ketchup.

Canada’s Favourite Ketchup is the benchmark for all Heinz products. They strive to deliver the same
standard of high quality throughout their brand portfolio. That was H.J. Heinz’s promise 150 years
, and it’s their promise today.
