Company Marks 100 Years of Heinz 57 Sauce
H.J. Heinz Co. is celebrating the centennial of its famous Heinz 57 Sauce, which company founder Henry J. Heinz introduced the as a way to add zest to all manner of meats, with specially marked 100th-anniversary bottles set to arrive in July on store shelves across the United States.
“Whether on the grill or in the kitchen, on pork, steak, chicken or veggies, this iconic Heinz product has been a part of kitchens and grills across America for 100 years,” noted Eric Dahmer, senior brand manager, Heinz 57 Sauce. “That’s an accomplishment we are very proud of. As families and tastes have evolved, the product remains a staple in households across the country, much like Heinz Ketchup, another Heinz brand with more than a century of heritage.”
Originally introduced as Heinz Beefsteak Sauce in 1911 and sold for just 25 cents, Heinz 57 Sauce offers a unique flavor, and a heavier consistency to ensure it doesn’t splash on the grill.
Along with the special packaging, Pittsburgh-based Heinz is offering 57-plus ways to grill with the sauce at Heinz57.com.
