HEINZ TOMATO KETCHUP SOCCER THEME

Clive’s Column – April 2010

MILO PUMA MINI BALL PROMOTION

While riding a train in New York City in 1896, Henry Heinz saw a sign advertising 21 styles of shoes, which he thought was a clever idea. Although Heinz was manufacturing more than 60 products at the time, Henry thought 57 was a lucky number. So, he began using the slogan ‘57 Varieties’ in all his advertising. Today the company has more than 5 700 products around the globe, but still uses the magic number 57.

No fewer than 650 million bottles of Heinz iconic Ketchup are sold internationally every year. Using Creative Licence’s design work for the soccer themed labels, Colpak prints the shrink sleeves on a ten-colour UV press on 40µm PET with Mirage inks. Repro is by Syreline. Nampak Liquid supplies the ‘upside-down’ and ‘right-side-up’ PET bottles while Consol Glass supplies the 375ml glass bottle (note the embossed ‘57’ on the shoulders of the bottle). The 30mm multi-language metal pop-up button closure on the glass bottle is imported by Nampak Closures from Silgan White Cap in Germany while the plastic butterfly hinge caps are ex Seaquist.
