Reportedly, the COVID-19 Pandemic is causing a nationwide ketchup shortage.

Restaurants around America are ‘scambling' to get ahold of tomato sauce.

Due to the demand for ditching shared bottles due to health measures, the ramping up of packets and other single-use containers have become more popular.

Since January last year, the packets' prices have amped up to 13 percent, increasing a further demand.

HEINZ is the largest producer in the market and has not been able to keep up daily.

Its manufacturing capacity is being overworked, which means restaurants have to wait patiently until around 25 percent of inclination can be achieved to continue producing more than 12 billion single-use sachets.

Larger chains have had to find ‘alternatives' to the HEINZ brand due to shortages. It has caused more significant spending footing an enormous bill for restaurants around the country.
