South Africans love All Gold Tomato sauce, but there are a number of us that have a particular preference for Heinz Tomato Ketchup, making it an ongoing debate about which one is the best. Sadly, this debate will soon come to an end as Heinz Tomato Ketchup will no longer be available in South Africa.
Mandy Murphy, Managing Executive Foods for PepsiCo SA, told Food24 that Pioneer Foods had been procuring, distributing and selling Heinz Ketchup in South Africa under licence from Kraft Heinz, the fifth-largest food and beverage company in the world. The licence for South African distribution expired at the end of May 2020 and has not been renewed.
As devastating as this might be for lovers of Heinz Tomato Ketchup, there are still some bottles on supermarket shelves, so stock up while you still can!
