GOOD FOR THE PLANET IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS.
Sustainability is core to our business. We’re well on our way to reaching our 2050 goal of carbon neutrality. In fact, we’re also on track to have 100% of Heinz Ketchup tomatoes sustainably sourced by 2025. And our commitment doesn’t stop there.
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.
