“Select Food Products: On the front line of the condiment war!”

“Since Heinz decided to pull the plug on its Canadian plant in Leamington, 740 jobs were lost. Heinz decided to make its ketchup solely in the USA. Then, French’s stepped in and decided to make ketchup. They also decided to use those same Leamington tomatoes from Canadian farmers,” Fernandez wrote. “The result: A ketchup …. free of preservatives. Free of artificial flavours. Also, free of high fructose corn syrup!! We bought a bottle. Absolutely love it!! Bye. Bye. Heinz.”

“Canadians love French’s Ketchup and so do we!”

We are thrilled to have been chosen to be the exclusive partner of French’s to bottle all of the Ketchup for Canada. This is a clear demonstration of our commitment to do what it takes to work with our customers, and French’s Food Company is a great fit because we are aligned with many of our values. This win was a very collaborative process and by working together we were able to create the required solutions and overcome challenges to meet all of their needs. Increasing manufacturing and production in Canada is an important part of French’s business model and Select has the benefit of being 100% Canadian with the category expertise, technological know-how and flexible production capacity to truly make this a win-win. Select has produced barbecue sauces, salad dressings and gravy for 75 years now, so producing ketchup is an exciting yet very natural extension for us. – Andrew Mitchell
