Leamington, Ontario

Leamington, Ontario is nicknamed “The Tomato Capital of Canada” because of it’s rich history of growing quality tomatoes. Since 1908, the area has thrived on tomato production for the H. J. Heinz Company.

In 2014, the H. J. Heinz Company closed it’s Leamington plant. This decision put 740 employees out of a job and brought uncertainty to the towns’ future. A few months later, a new company, Highbury Canco Corp took over the plant and signed a letter of intent to continue processing some tomatoes for Heinz. This was only enough to keep about 1/3 of the plants’ workers employed.

Shortly after, French’s decided to release a Tomato Ketchup product using paste from the high quality tomatoes grown in Leamington, Ontario. Not only did this decision revitalize the town of Leamington, it also brought pride to the people of the town. Their tomatoes were once again being used to produce some of the highest quality ketchup.

Ketchup Availability

A renewed sense of pride swept Leamington and it’s residents. As production began, the town was coming back to life. There was just one problem.

French’s Tomato Ketchup, made from Canadian tomatoes, was phased out of Loblaws stores. Loblaws cited a lack of commitment to the brand and decided to stop carrying French’s Tomato Ketchup in it’s stores, giving shelf space to Heinz and it’s own brand of ketchup instead.

Loblaws has since reversed their decision and are stocking French’s Tomato Ketchup once again. They’re not making a commitment to volume or how long they’ll keep the product in stock for. We decided to solve that problem. If you’d like to purchase Canadian-made ketchup, you can order it right here on our site. We’ll ship it to you immediately and we’ll even donate profits to the town of Leamington.
