No more Heinz at McD’s

Who can end a relationship after 40 years? I guess McDonald’s can.

According to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, McDonald’s Corp announced plans to end its 40-year relationship with ketchup maker H.J. Heinz Co. The Heinz Company is now led by Bernardo Hees, the former chief executive of hamburger rival Burger King Worldwide Inc.

“As a result of recent management changes at Heinz, we have decided to transition our business to other suppliers over time,” according to a statement from Oak Brook, Ill.-based McDonald’s.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and an investment fund affiliated with 3G Capital bought the Pittsburg–based Heinz and named Hees CEO thereafter.

Heinz plans to work with McDonald’s to assure a smooth transition, considering McDonald’s has more than 34,000 restaurants around the world.

No word yet on whether Omaha-based ConAgra’s Hunts ketchup will pour its way in.
