Henry Heinz (1844)

Heinz was a pioneer in the American food industry. He got an early start in the food business, peddling surplus home-grown vegetables to neighbors by the age of eight. In 1876, he, his brother, and a cousin founded a pickles and condiments company that became the H. J. Heinz Company when he bought them out in 1888. The company's tomato ketchup quickly became a bestseller and remains the most popular ketchup in the US today. Why did Heinz make "57 varieties" his company slogan? More...

We probably couldn't "live" without most of those 57 varieties. Thanks Mr. Heinz...if for no other reason as to cover up the smell/taste of bad meat.

In Oz, we eat tomato sauce! & the best selling brand? Fountain! You've probably never heard of it.
We do have Heinz baked beans, I think they're one of the truly ubiquitous products. I've never heart the "57 varieties" slogan before now. Think

Its famous slogan, "57 varieties", was introduced by Heinz in 1896. The reason for "57" is unclear. Heinz said he chose "5" because it was his lucky number and the number "7" was his wife's lucky number.[1]

Do you know that.....

* Over 650 million bottles of Heinz Ketchup are sold around the world in more than 140 countries, with annual sales of more than $1.5 billion.

* Heinz sells 11 billion single-serve packets of ketchup per year around the world. That's 2 packets for every person on earth.

* Ketchup exits the iconic glass bottle at .028 miles per hour. If the viscosity of the ketchup is greater than this speed, the ketchup is rejected for sale

* Although ketchup is the most famous Heinz product today, when Henry Heinz started the Company in 1869, his first product was bottled horseradish made from his mother's own recipe.

Ketchup didn’t come along until seven years later in 1876.

* While riding a train in New York City in 1896, Henry Heinz saw a sign advertising 21 styles of shoes, which he thought was clever. Although Heinz was manufacturing more than 60 products at the time, Henry thought 57 was a lucky number. So, he began using the slogan "57 Varieties" in all his advertising. Today the company has more than 5,700 products around the globe, but still uses the magic number of "57."

* Henry Heinz attracted traffic to his 1893 Chicago World's Fair booth by offering a free gift— a small green pickle charm, which later became a pin. The pickle pin is one of the most famous merchandising giveaways in history and has become a popular collectible.

*The H.J. Heinz Company uses more tomatoes than any other company in the world. Over two million tons of tomatoes are processed every year.

She looks loaded while screaming at him in the streets of Newport or Boston. I remember the picture and the headline. It was not a happy evening for Kerry. Yikes!
