Indianapolis – Just in time for football season, Red Gold is unveiling an exciting new look for the “Official Ketchup of the Indianapolis Colts.” Emblazoned in Colts Blue, the new ketchup label features both the Colts and Red Gold and coincides with an expansion and extension of the partnership between the two iconic Indiana brands (new design attached).
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Red Gold, which is a family-owned Hoosier business, like the Colts,” said Roger VanDerSnick, Colts chief sales & marketing officer. “Our fans’ love showing their support for the Colts and for local businesses. Our partnership with Red Gold is going on 13 years, so it felt like the perfect time to update the look of our official ketchup.”
From gameday tailgates to family dinners, Colts Ketchup has been a Hoosier favorite for more than a decade. Fans enjoying Colts Ketchup are also supporting Indiana and Midwestern farmers, who grow Red Gold tomatoes. The ketchup is manufactured in nearby Elwood, Ind.
“My dad first purchased our family’s season tickets 36 years ago when the Colts arrived in Indiana,” said Brian Reichart, Red Gold President and CEO. “Since then our family, including the Red Gold employees, always enjoys supporting the Colts. Our collaboration with the team to make Colts Ketchup is another great way to celebrate fan pride while gathering with family and friends.”
The Official Ketchup of the Colts is currently available in various local stores, including Meijer. Red Gold is served at Lucas Oil Stadium and many restaurants throughout the state. In addition to ketchup, Red Gold produces the mustard, BBQ sauce, relish and Huy Fong Sriracha ketchup enjoyed by Colts fans at the stadium.
