Heinz Ketchup Out At M&T Bank Stadium (BBJ Story)
Ketchup lovers won’t be able to put some Heinz on their hot dog at M&T Bank Stadium anymore. McCormick & Co. Inc. is expanding its sponsorship with the Baltimore Ravens, a deal making it the exclusive condiment provider at M&T Bank Stadium.
Starting with this Sunday's home game against the New Orleans Saints, the flavoring company's Frank’s RedHot Sauce and French’s ketchup and mustard brands will be available at all concession areas throughout the 71,000-seat stadium. McCormick's Stubb's Bar-B-Q Sauces will also be available later this season. The long-term deal between the two Baltimore brands means products from Pittsburgh-based Heinz will no longer be carried at M&T Bank Stadium. The Pittsburgh connection is only a coincidence. It has nothing to do with the Ravens rivalry with the Steelers.
