GOOD FOR THE PLANET IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS.
Every bottle of Heinz Ketchup sold in Canada is produced in Mont Royal, Quebec, and by 2024, 100% of tomatoes in those bottles will be grown in Canadian soil by passionate people dedicated to growing high-quality and non-GMO tomatoes.
- Close to home
Heinz tomato fields are all within 30 miles of our paste plants. Tomatoes are processed within 4 hours of harvesting, keeping our carbon footprint low while ensuring the highest level of freshness and flavour.
- The best and the rest
95% of our Heinz tomatoes are perfectly ripe when they leave the field. To minimize waste, the less-than-perfect tomatoes get repurposed for feed and compost.
- Recycled seeds
Even after we’ve strained the thick, juicy tomato pulp, the leftover skins and seeds are recycled into livestock feed for use on our farms.
- Conservation education
We’ve created agricultural development projects that teach tomato conservation and conservation farming to farms worldwide, including Brazil, Egypt, and Spain.
PACKAGING & RECYCLABILITY
We’re actively innovating to make 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging and reduce our landfill intensity by 20% by 2025. In Canada, we have the ambitious goal of creating a fully circular Heinz Tomato Ketchup bottle by 2025.
WATER USE & CONSERVATION
Water is everything at Kraft Heinz, so we’re developing smarter systems that protect, conserve and optimize with the goal of reducing water use intensity by 15% across our manufacturing facilities and 20% in high-risk watershed areas by 2025.
ENERGY USE & RENEWABLES
We’re well on our way to reducing our overall energy use by 15% with a goal of procuring the majority of our electricity from renewable resources by 2025.
We’re working to make less waste. Already diverting 90% of our solid waste to recycling or byproducts usage.
