Sustainable Eggs are Our Responsibility

We make a lot of mayo every year. Which means we use a lot of eggs. And our commitment to using Barn Eggs makes a huge difference to the quality of life of literally millions of hens. 

Product Backstory

How we pick our farms starts with how they pick their crops

We’re on a mission to make our responsibly sourced ingredients the Blue Ribbon Standard for the industry, and we can’t do this without our farmers. Our incredible Blue Ribbon Farm families proudly supply Hellmann's® with responsibly sourced soybean oil.

Tomatoes That Taste Great Should Also Do Good

Tomatoes maketh the ketchup. And we make sure ours are of the highest quality. But we’ve always believed that the best tasting tomatoes come from a good place. That’s why we’re committed to making all of our ketchups with sustainably-grown tomatoes (link to product page). Aside from the fact that they’re  a higher quality, sustainable farming also protects the land for future generations.

Nature Makes Them Red And Green. Who Are We To Disagree?

Consequently, over 10% of tomato crops are being wasted, which amounts to up to 8 million tomatoes each day across the world simply because they aren’t red enough to go into ketchup.  That’s crazy. Some farms even have special machines that check the colour and discard any that don’t fit the bill. It’s automated food waste. And it’s time we did something about it. That’s why we’ve made a special ketchup that uses red and green tomatoes. If you like it, let us know. Because frankly, no good tomato should go to waste.

The Sweet Smell of Success?

Sweetness is one of the things that makes ketchup taste soooo good. But that doesn’t mean it has to be refined sugar. At Hellmann’s, we’re exploring using natural forms of sugar instead. And honey is the most intriguing option we’ve found so far. In fact, we’re so intrigued by it that we’ve launched new Hellmann’s Sweetened by Honey.  And we’d love to hear what you make of it.
