0315french It all started only a few days ago and it was all about Ketchup! It was also Canadian Pride and supporting our Canadian Farmers!

Some Background: Heinz Ketchup closed down it’s Leamington plant in Ontario putting many out of work and moved it’s operation to south of the boarder in the US. Many Canadians became very supportive of French’s ketchup due to it now operating out of the Leamington location and using Canadian tomatoes!

  1. I think it doesn’t matter why Loblaw’s dropped French’s Ketchup, because the complaints on social media made them bring it back. However, I expect it was outperforming their own PC product and that did not serve their greedy purposes!
