McDonald's Drops Heinz Ketchup Due to Executive Rivalry

After 40 years, McDonald's is parting ways with Heinz ketchup and will no longer serve its products in its restaurants. The change, which will affect 34,000 McDonald's eateries, was decided after Heinz appointed the former head of Burger King, Bernardo Hees, as its new chief executive officer. Under Hees' leadership, Burger King made significant headway in becoming the leading competitor of the Golden Arches. "As a result of recent management changes at Heinz, we have decided to transition our business to other suppliers over time," McDonald's said in a statement. Story.
