Producing tomato ketchup under Martian conditions

The global pursuit to grow fresh, tasty food has reached dizzying new heights.

Heinz’s Tomato Masters and a team from Florida Tech’s AldrinSpace Institute have successfully grown Heinz tomatoes in Martian soil conditions. The project was created to enhance knowledge of growing tomatoes in a sustainable way, not just on the red planet but also on our own.

"With such experiments, we’re able to advance our understanding and create solutions for challenges on Earth. Taking care of our soils is one of our key missions and we will take our learnings into continuing our commitments towards growing sustainable crops, so that we can continue making the world’s favorite ketchup for generations to come," Heinz's Tomato Masters explain.
