A&W Partners with The French’s Food Company to Serve Condiments Made From High Quality Canadian Ingredients
VANCOUVER, March 29, 2016 /CNW/ – A&W Food Services of Canada Inc., home of Canada’s best-tasting burger, is introducing a new partnership with The French’s Food Company as part of its continued commitment to providing guests with great-tasting food, farmed with care. After more than six months of collaborating with French’s, A&W is proud to announce that it will be the first national restaurant to serve French’s Tomato Ketchup and Classic Yellow Mustard in all of its restaurants across Canada. Both the Ketchup and Mustard are made without preservatives or artificial flavours and colours, and contain 100% Canadian tomatoes and 100% Canadian mustard seeds.
The transition to French’s Tomato Ketchup and Classic Yellow Mustard is already underway and A&W guests across Canada will be able to enjoy the new toppings on all their favourite menu items starting in April.
As a 100 per cent Canadian-owned and operated company, A&W is proud to use locally-sourced tomatoes from Leamington, ON and mustard seeds from Saskatchewan in all of its ketchup and mustard—including in its kitchens, dining areas and take-out orders. The tomatoes and mustard seeds are grown by second and third generation farmers with the expertise to produce the finest crops that are perfect for ketchup and mustard. What’s more, all of A&W’s Ketchup is produced and packaged in Ontario.
A Perfect Partnership
“At A&W, we’re always looking to partner with Canadian suppliers and farmers who are producing natural ingredients,” says Susan Senecal, President and Chief Operating Officer, A&W Food Services of Canada Inc. “The tomato farmers in Leamington and mustard seed farmers in Saskatchewan work hard to produce the best quality ingredients for French’s, and we are proud to add these locally-sourced products to the menu at all of our Canadian restaurants, including our restaurant in Leamington.”
“French’s and A&W are committed to the same values, including great taste, real ingredients and added social responsibility. This is a natural relationship for us,” says Elliott Penner, president, The French’s Food Company. “We have been working with A&W for more than six months to bring this partnership to life, and are excited for such an iconic Canadian company to become the first national restaurant to serve French’s Ketchup and Mustard.”
