Since 1869, Heinz ketchup has been a condiment consumers crave. In the decades since its debut, the packaging has gone through a number of evolutionary changes.
To honor the brand’s 150th anniversary, Packaging Digest walked through some of the ketchup’s most notable packaging changes:
• 1876: Heinz launches in clear glass bottles.
• 1968: The condiment launches aluminum-foil-laminated foodservice packets, still popular with take-out joints today.
• 1983: Squeezable plastic bottles debut.
• 2010: The Dip & Squeeze thermoformed containers debut (see photo above), offering more ways to use the condiment and three times more ketchup than foil packets.
