Maybe I am becoming a food activist. I am not sure. I know that I don’t eat Nestlé products anymore, for political reasons. The Nestlé corporation has some very unsavoury views about acquiring fresh water for profit. I disagree, so I have stopped buying Nestlé water and all their food products… including those wonderful ice cream treats. Oh well. Today I am trying something new. Like most people I know I would only buy Heinz Ketchup. But since that company closed its Canadian plant at
Ontario it appears that our favourite Heinz is
no longer made in Canada.
I have been told, but have not been able to confirm, that it is made in Mexico. Well
I am told is nice place. But I prefer to buy local. Tonight I was picking up
some groceries when I noticed that French’s now makes a ketchup product. So yes
indeed, I purchased a bottle. I am not sure yet that it is made in Canada, but the
label said ten cents from every bottle sold goes to Ontario Food Banks. Oh please,
I hope it tastes good. Or I will feel like a bloody fool.
