  1. hunts

    Hunt's is the name of a brand of preserved tomato products owned by Conagra Brands. The company was founded in 1888, in Sebastopol, California, as the Hunt Bros. Fruit Packing Co., by Joseph and William Hunt. The brothers relocated to nearby Santa Rosa in 1890, and then to Hayward in 1895. This small canning operation grew rapidly, focused on canning the products of California's booming fruit and vegetable industries. By 1941, the plant shipped a hundred million cans of soup, fruits, vegetables, and juices annually.In 1943, Hunt's was taken over by Norton Simon's Val Vita Food Products - a competing firm founded in the early 1930s and based in Fullerton, California. The merged firm kept the Hunt's name and incorporated as Hunt Food and Industries, Inc. The new management led by Norton Simon decided to focus the company on canned tomato products, particularly prepared tomato sauce. The Wesson Oil & Snowdrift Company merged with Hunt's Foods, Inc. in 1960 to become Hunt-Wesson Foods. Hunt-Wesson merged with the McCall Corporation and Canada Dry to form Norton Simon Inc. in 1968. Norton Simon was acquired by Esmark in 1983, which merged with Beatrice Foods the next year. In 1985, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts acquired Beatrice with the goal of selling off businesses. Hunt-Wesson, the company which included the Hunt's brands, was sold in 1990 to agribusiness giant ConAgra Foods. In 1999, ConAgra Grocery Products (the former Hunt-Wesson) moved from Fullerton to Irvine, California. The Irvine office was closed in 2006.Besides several varieties of canned tomato sauce, the Hunt's brand appears on tomato paste, diced, whole, stewed, pureed and crushed tomatoes, organic and No Salt Added tomato products, spaghetti sauce, ketchup, barbecue sauce, canned potatoes, canned peaches and Hunt's Family Favorites line of canned recipe helpers. The Hunt's brand name also appears on Manwich brand sloppy joes products and formerly Hunt's Snack Pack Pudding. Reddi-wip whipped cream was originally also under the Hunt's banner. In 1988, Hunt's catsup changed its label to ketchup. In May 2010, Hunt's ketchup temporarily removed high fructose corn syrup from its ingredients. The new ingredients were "tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, salt and other seasonings". The product changed back to high fructose corn syrup in May 2012.As of May 2017, the sugar-based version has been available for some time in the US, labeled as 100% Natural Tomato Ketchup and in the specific sizes; 20 oz, 28 oz, 38.5 oz, and 62 oz. In December 2018, NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes signed an endorsement deal with Hunt's. Mahomes is well-known for his love of ketchup, even putting it on unconventional items such as steak and macaroni and cheese.Hunt Foods also operated a plant, #25 at 49 Grove St in Bridgeton, NJ which was closed in 1982. The following information was provided by P.J. Ritter: Hunts was located across the stream and in close proximity to Ritters along the Cohansey River on Grove Street in Bridgeton NJ. They were friendly competitors and if the processing line broke down at one of the plants they would divert the trucks filled with perishable tomatoes to each others processing plant. Dominick Sorantino a farmer from Cedarville was their biggest tomato supplier. The plant closed in 1982. Hunt-Wesson to close tomato cannery BRIDGETON, N.J. -- A tomato cannery that employs more than 600 workers during its peak months to load the air with hot, spicy steam will shut down by the end of the year, company officials said Wednesday. The cannery, a red brick institution in the Cumberland County seat, is owned by Hunt-Wesson Foods Inc., the largest food processor in the state still purchasing substantial amounts of fresh produce from local farmers. The company 'will phase out its operations between now and the end of the year,' said plant manager James Ramsey. 'We deeply regret having to take this action.' The move will be another financial blow to the county, where state figures show unemployment at 14.9 percent, the highest in New Jersey. The plant currently employs 135 workers fulltime for maintenance and production, and hires 500 seasonal workers for August and September, when the Jersey tomatoes are ripened and ready for processing into ketchup and tomato sauce. Ramsey said Hunt-Wesson decided to close the Bridgeton plant after surveys showed that moving all its operations to its western canneries would be more profitable. He said the decision was based on several factors, including the climate. The tomato season is nearly twice as long on the West Coast, Ramsey said, adding that milder weather conditions allowed for a larger and more dependable tomato crop annually. 'The volume of tomato tonnage is not as predictable from season to season in the East as it is there (on the West Coast),' he said. He said Hunt-Wesson would continue to produce ketchup and other products at canneries it operates in Ohio and California, adding those plants were newer and more efficient.

    We came up with very simple scavenger hunts that anyone could do. It's just thinking about all the crazy things that you have in your home, like like tools in the garage or maybe stuff in the kitchen, just being silly with it, like something green that could protect you from the rain.
