About Heinz Canada

The history of the H.J. Heinz Company in Canada began over 100 years ago with an enterprising young man named Henry Heinz. In 1909, after building a successful company in United States, Heinz chose Leamington –the heart of Ontario’s tomato growing region—as the most suitable site for the first-ever expansion of his operations outside the USA.

Best known for its iconic Heinz® Ketchup, the H.J. Heinz Company is Canada's leading marketer of high quality ketchup and condiments, infant foods, pasta sauces, canned beans and pasta, and specialty sauces and salad dressings through all retail and foodservice channels.
