PLANT

French’s ketchup will be bottled in Canada starting early May

Select Food Products will produce all the ketchup sold in Canada at its North York plant.


TORONTO — An Ontario facility will start producing French’s ketchup early next month as condiment companies continue to battle for Canadian dollars with displays of national pride.

Select Food Products Ltd. will produce all of the company’s ketchup sold in Canada at its North York plant.

Previously some French’s ketchup sold in Canada was manufactured in the US.

French’s announced the partnership with Select Food Products last June, saying it would take until early 2017 for the new plant to be operational.

The news came following a social media backlash against Heinz after a man’s Facebook post pointed out the company closed its Leamington, Ont. plant and cost the community about 750 jobs, while lauding French’s for using 100% Canadian grown tomatoes.

  2. Gerry says:

    Thank God for French ketchup. I will not be buying Heinz
    after seeing the way they put farmers out of business in my home town and Leamington throwing people out of work.
    They have no sense of corporate responsibility to the town that made them famous.
