Heinz Tomato Ketchup is Grown, Not Made

We’re dedicated to making sure every tomato in every bottle of Heinz Ketchup comes from our own Heinz Seeds and is grown by farmers we know and trust. We track our tomatoes from seed to table because we think you should know where your ketchup comes from.

Heinz Ketchup is made with nothing but simple ingredients: tomato paste (from real tomatoes), sugar, vinegar, salt, onion powder and spices. And of course, our products are free from preservatives, artificial colours, flavours, and gluten.*

Our Heinz Ketchup is a unique recipe made just for Canadians. For more than a century people have been falling in love with Heinz Ketchup and it's clear why. In Canada, Heinz is Ketchup. Join us for a little trip down memory lane for a look at our history.
