Our farming partners and their practices are a big part of our sustainability model.

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.

OUR TOMATOES

Only the best goes into every bottle of Heinz Ketchup. Our high-quality, non-GMO tomatoes are grown by passionate farmers whom we’re proud to call our partners.

  1. Our products depend on quality ingredients produced through sustainable farming practices.

    Close to home

    To keep freshness and flavor in, Heinz tomato fields are within an average of four hours from harvest to unloading. This also keeps our carbon footprint low, and our quality high.

  2. We find the right ingredients, picked at the most optimal time for quality.

    The best and the rest

    95% of our Heinz tomatoes are perfectly ripe when they leave the field. What’s left from harvesting, like vines and leaves are composted back into the soil for added nutrients.

  3. Tomato parts that don't go into our ketchup are recycled into feed, compost or fertilizer.

    Recycled seeds

    Even after we’ve strained the thick, juicy tomato pulp, the leftover skins and seeds are upcycled into pet food or used to feed livestock on local farms.

  4. Sharing our expertise and learnings around the world helps everyone grow better.

    Conservation education

    We’ve created agricultural development projects that teach tomato conservation and conservation farming to farms worldwide, including Brazil, China, Egypt, and Spain.

Wherever we can, we reduce and reuse in our packaging and processing.

PACKAGING & RECYCLABILITY

We’re actively innovating to make 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging and reduce our landfill intensity by 20% by 2025. In Europe, we have the ambitious goal of creating a fully circular Heinz Tomato Ketchup bottle by the end of this year.

Quality of water is as important to our ingredients as ingredients are to the quality of our products.

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.

We test new concepts, learn and prove outcomes to implement energy savings across our business

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.

Recycling and diversion helps reduce waste across our business.

WASTE REDUCTION

We’re working to make less waste. Already diverting 90% of our solid waste to recycling or byproducts usage.
