Kraft Heinz bringing ketchup production back to Canada
The new ketchup line is set to begin operation in late summer 2021
TORONTO — Kraft Heinz announced on Nov. 17 that production of Heinz Ketchup for sale in Canada is moving back to Canada from the United States.
The condiment will be produced at Kraft Heinz Canada’s flagship Mont Royal factory in Montreal, Que.
The new ketchup line is set to begin operation in late summer 2021 and is expected to produce over 100 million pounds of Heinz Ketchup for Canadian consumers in the first two years alone as production ramps up. This project is a joint investment between Kraft Heinz Canada and the Government of Quebec’s business expansion program.
“Kraft Heinz Canada is pleased to partner with the Quebec Government on this investment in bringing ketchup production back to Canada from the U.S.,” said Bruno Keller, president, Kraft Heinz Canada, in a prepared statement. “Through our partnership with Quebec and increased efficiencies at our Mont Royal facility, it became possible to return this iconic product back to Canada for Canadians at this time.”
