Product shortages occored all over the past year, mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic that has affected many sectors around the world. The latest shortage on the U.S. market is ketchup, which, despite restrictions, is increasingly held in restaurants and fast food restaurants.


One of the big food companies in the United States, H. J. Heinz, has also been hit by the problem of global product shortages caused by the pandemic, as there is too much demand for a condiment that the company is unable to supply. The shortage mainly affects smaller packaging products found in restaurants, less so for plastic bottles. The ketchup of the globally popular brand is lacking at big restaurant chains like Long John Silver and Texas Roadhouse – according to an article in The Wall Street Journal. (origo)
