The BBC reported on Wednesday that the United States is facing a shortage of ketchup as the coronavirus pandemic has increased demand for this popular food.
Heinz is the most famous ketchup brand, and he said that the increase in demand is due to an increase in the tendency to deliver or take out food.
People with food ordered more ketchup, and these ketchups replaced the bottled ketchup on restaurant tables.
The company has pledged to increase production.
Heinz told AFP that he has adjusted the production process, but “demand is still higher than supply.”
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the price of ketchup has risen by 13% since January 2020.
