In 2021, La Tomatina festival was cancelled for the second year in a row because of COVID-19, devastating local farmers who rely on income from the festival. We bought tomatoes from local farmers and turned those tomatoes into Heinz Ketchup. We updated the label on the classic glass Heinz ketchup bottle, replacing the iconic tomato hanging from a vine with a splattered tomato, and naming it 'Heinz Tomatina'.
