In 1869, Henry John ("H.J.") Heinz inauspiciously began selling bottles of horseradish, pickles, vinegar and other sauces around Pittsburgh. From those modest beginnings, the company grew into a worldwide conglomerate whose name remains extremely prominent around Pittsburgh.

One hundred and fifty years later, it's time to celebrate the company's long history.

The family name adorns Heinz Field, home of the Steelers and Pitt Panthers; the Heinz History Center and Museum in the Strip District; Heinz Hall, the Downtown performing arts center; Heinz chapel in Oakland, where countless couples have been married over the years; and Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy.

Then there's the Heinz Endowments, one of the nation's largest philanthropic organizations. It awards about $70 million in grants annually, mostly to organization in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Heinz recently has rolled out hybrid condiments - Mayocue (mayonaise-barbecue), Mayormust (mayonaise and mustard) and Krance (ketchup-ranch). But they aren't part of the official birthday celebration.

That occurs in October at the history center with an event called Heinztoberfest, a month-long celebration honoring the company's 150th anniversary. Heinztoberfest will include a food festival, exclusive merchandise, Heinz-themed programs and the release of a new Heinz history book.

Here are the scheduled events:

  • 21+ Night: Heinz 57: Oct. 3, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Celebrate all things Heinz with craft cocktails courtesy of Wigle Whiskey, a hot dog bar, and an exploration of one of Pittsburgh’s favorite brands. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at heinzhistorycenter.org/events.

Heinz Canada invents bottle that helps you pour ketchup

Heinz Canada invents bottle that helps you pour ketchup Getting ketchup out of a glass bottle is a dark art, passed down through generations of ketchup users. You could, of course, just buy the squeeze bottle, but what would be the fun in that? You wouldn’t have the joy of shaking the bottle, tilting the bottle, sticking a knife in the bottle, or smugly informing your tablemates that all they have to do is gently smack the embossed “57” on the neck of a bottle of Heinz. © Screenshot: Heinz Ketchup Canada (YouTube)But now Heinz Canada, the product of a kinder, gentler nation than our own (or so we like to think), wants us to know that all you have to do to get the ketchup flowing is to hold the bottle at a 45 degree angle.
