Heinz ketchup was introduced in 1876 as a "Blessed relief for Mother and the other women in the household!"

Heinz sells more than 50% of the ketchup in the U.S., 48% of the frozen potatoes, 40% of the tuna and over 50% of the diet foods.

Heinz's slogan '57 Varieties' originated in 1896.

Heinz is a leading producer of vinegar. The company employs a vinegar taster to judge the quality of the company's vinegars.

Heinz was a marketing and advertising pioneer. His company had the largest commercial exhibit at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, and in 1900 erected the first electric sign in New York, a 40 foot pickle!

In 1905 H.J. Heinz Company was the U.S. largest producer of pickles, vinegar and ketchup.
