Red Gold has doubled down on portable ketchup.
After recent reports that some ketchup manufacturers were scrambling to keep up with ketchup demand, the Midwest tomato manufacturer announced a May 2020 production plan doubled capacity to allow them to keep up with production. The company reports it developed two pre-portioned ketchup items on other manufacturing lines while also continuing to run its ketchup packet lines at maximum efficiency.
"Nearly a year later, the surge in ketchup packet demand has not subsided and only continues to increase as the fear of the ‘Next Toilet Paper’ arises in customers and buyers across the country," the company said in a statement. "It is the time for flexibility, however not at the cost of convenience or profitability for restaurant operators. Red Gold can provide alternate ketchup packaging options."
