In 2015, co-founder Evan Lampsa underwent open-heart surgery to fix a congenital heart defect. While the event alone did not inspire him to create ketchup, it did motivate him to create healthier foods for people. Ketchup is a condiment many people do not perceive as detrimental to their health, but most conventional ketchup is composed of 20% sugar alone.
At Ketchup Please, we believe in fostering a healthier and happier America. Our product is specifically engineered to both provide an alternative to unhealthy mainstream brands and put a smile on your face.
By providing consumers with a cause they can understand, and a mission they can believe in, Ketchup Please is making America a healthier and happier place, one ketchup bottle at a time.
