TORONTO, June 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, French's is on a mission to thank Canadians in communities large and small for supporting a ketchup that uses 100 percent locally-sourced tomatoes, is bottled right here in Canada and brings great taste to everyone's favourite summer foods. In honour of the upcoming Canada Day holiday, French's is hitting the road in a Thank You Truck on June 26th to surprise and delight fans.
French's will personally thank and hand out Canada Day essentials, including ketchup, sunglasses, totes, and towels as well as sample food topped with ketchup, from its fun, eye-catching truck as it travels from Toronto to Leamington, Ont. Along the way, French's will make special stops for unique fan experiences. Be sure to follow @FrenchsCanada on Facebook and @Frenchs on Instagram and Twitter.
"Canada Day is about more than barbecues, fireworks and camping. It celebrates everything that is great about this country and the people who call Canada home," said Cheryl Radisa, Vice President of Marketing at McCormick. "We're excited to say 'Thank You' to our fans, tomato growers and producers in the communities where we live, work and play. The French's Thank You Truck is all about spreading the love to our most passionate supporters ahead of Canada Day."
There is no doubt that Canadians love ketchup. And, French's ketchup has become a Canadian favourite over the recent years thanks to its strong fan advocacy. French's wanted to show their appreciation to many of their fans in a special way.
