"No wonder she doesn't want her tax returns released!"
Last I heard she will be releasing the first 2 pages of her return when it is filed, sometime around Sept - Oct. Those 2 pages will provide a lot of information about income, deductions, and the sources of them. The supporting schedules which would include details on her childrens' tax info (partial) will not be released last I heard.
Have you heard anything different?
"Heinz has 57 factories in other countries. Is that what Heinz 57 stands for? :)"
No, the 57 stands for the number of varieties produced by the original - Pittsburgh - Heinz Co. (mainly pickles) - from memory of a 5th grade trip we took to the Heinz Co. plant. This was long before they owned any foreign factories - I'm not even sure that's a valid # of foreign plants.
The Heinz 57 Varieties slogan is synonymous with the name "Heinz." Our corporate history tells us that in 1896, Henry John Heinz noticed an advertisement for "21 styles of shoes." He decided that his own products were not styles, but varieties. Although there were many more than 57 foods in production at the time, because the numbers "5" and "7" held a special significance for him and his wife, he adopted the slogan "57 Varieties." Thus, a new advertising campaign was launched for Heinz 57 Varieties and the rest is history!
But it is kind of funny that Heinz has 57 factories oversees, as well. Funny coincidence.
I was looking at some new contests and discovered this one:
http://www.heinzitup.com/promotions_entry.asp (It's for Canadians)
I was laughing my arse off when I saw the grand prize:
Grand Prize: 6-night trip for two to Paris, France for cooking classes at Le Cordon Bleu (ARV $9,000 CDN).
Secondary Prizes (50): Cookbook (ARV $30 CDN).
Heheh.. france how funny is that!
Hey, if you buy your products from another company, they have employees also. And just perhaps they will have to hire additional employees, if you buy enough from them.
Or are you just going to stop buying anything?
Heinz Canada's Leamington plant announces $4.3 million investment to expand pasta sauce production
Canada NewsWire reports that Heinz Canada has announced plans to relocate production of 1.2 million cases of canned tomato pasta sauce from a Borden Montreal facility to the Heinz Leamington plant. The company will make a $3 million capital investment to move equipment from Montreal and re-install it in Leamington. Heinz will also spend an additional $1.3 million to install a new tomato paste filler which will extend the plant's production capabilities for seasonal tomato products.
The announced expenditure builds on the successful launch this fall of the production line for a new plastic ketchup jug for the food service market in Canada and the US. Sales of the new plastic ketchup jug dubbed "Big Red" are exceeding initial projections and plans are under way to market the jug to additional new channels beyond food service. The growth in demand for additional tomato solids to be used in production of a range of processed tomato products from ketchup to chili sauce resulted in the decision to invest $1.3 million for the tomato paste filler. The filler will add 35,000 tons of storage space bringing plant capacity up to 275,000 tons of fresh tomatoes annually.
Heinz Canada's Leamington plant -- one of the largest production facilities in the world for Heinz products -- provides a wide range of products including ketchup, chili sauce, tomato juice, jarred baby foods, infant cereal, canned beans and pasta, and vinegar. With the addition of the Catelli, Bravo and Gattuso pasta sauces, total canned production at Leamington will grow to more than 23 million cases or an increase of 5.4%.
This is from back in April???? I'm not going to go back and start reading all that stuff again...I hope this is still in context....so I'll just say that I'll buy from anyone I want, because I really don't care about anything other than their product.
Did you say $510,000,000??? No wonder John married Thereza. That's a lot of ketchup bottles sold to get to the White House.
Wow, that was a reply from a thread in April!
My stand is not to vote at all, as I will not take an active part in getting either of the candidates elected. I will take what I get.
check out factcheck.org to see public record of what the Kerry's position is with the Heniz company before you start throwing away your ketchup!
Been doing this for over a year now. BTW, OreIda is a Heinz brand. I don't have the whole list...anyone who does, please post.
Younz people crazy n at or what?
We have been.
A while back, I bought a case of "W" Ketchup.
It's great, and some of the profits go to a scholarship for the children of our Fallen Heroes.
What could be better than that?
BUSH WINNING!!! THAT'S WHAT!!!!
Let's make it happen.
I no longer buy Heinz products and have noticed that my supermarket is selling two Heinz tomato ketchup bottles for the price of one! Which evidently means that they must be having the need to move the paste fast!
Definitely time to switch to Hunts. Or generic for all I care. Just not Heinz. Heinz scrambled to make sure we all know that Teraaaayyyyzza doesn't have any decision making power in the company but... too bad so sad.
