About this project
Introducing Jonny Hetherington Essentials Ketchup Trio. Premium Ketchup packed with flavor made in small batches with ingredients that you can feel good about eating. Original, Goji Berry and Beet Tomato Ketchups.
It's all about tomatoes! We've sourced the very best fresh tomatoes the west coast has to offer. Our Ketchup has a beautifully balanced flavor and is made without preservatives or additives. Pour it on and feel good about what you're eating!
Goji Berries are a superfood packed with antioxidants and energy boosting qualities, and we're lucky to have Canada's only grower right here in our own backyard! Our Goji Berry Tomato Ketchup has a unique and tangy flavor with the added bonus of amazing health benefits.
We love beets! They are naturally sweet and packed with 'out of the garden' goodness. You'll find yourself craving this amazingly rich Beet and Tomato Ketchup with it's beautiful color and earthy flavor.
In 2015 we launched Jonny Hetherington Essentials and our flagship trio of Habanero Hot Sauces. After a successful Kickstarter and a year of showing our Hot Sauces in Western Canada, we are proud to now be on the store shelves in more that 70 retailers including Whole Foods Markets and other local shops that share our vision of using clean ingredients and stepping away from the use of preservatives and unhealthy additives.
Ketchup is one of our favorite condiments. We use it almost everyday. We've become label readers and care about what we're putting in our bodies, so naturally we'd like a sauce that we use on breakfast, lunch and dinner to be made with fresh ingredients and without preservatives. It's also time to get back to basics for us and avoid heavily processed foods with ingredients like high fructose corn syrup. We've sourced the best ingredients for Jonny Hetherington Essentials Premium Ketchups so we can feel good about what we're eating.
Be the first to taste our trio of small batch Ketchups! Your pre-order will help us fund the costs of ingredients and kitchen space required to produce our first batch and help launch the second phase of our company.
We have sourced only the best fruits and vegetables to go into theses Ketchups because we care about what goes into our bodies. Just read the label, we've kept it simple and most importantly, all natural.
There are no additives, preservatives, thickeners or binders and no added color in our Ketchups, just fresh, all natural ingredients. We believe that if you can't pronounce it, you're best not to eat it!
We think it's an absurd idea to package any food made of amazing ingredients in plastic containers. What good are natural ingredients if they've been exposed to BPAs, BPFs or any other harmful chemicals that can leak into our foods?
