In honor of National Hot Dog Month, Heinz is addressing an issue that has plagued the public for decades with its new Heinz Hot Dog Pact. The new petition seeks to rectify why hot dog wieners have come in packs of 10 and hot dog buns in packs of 8, with the goal of brokering a negotiation between bun and wiener companies to finally sell equal quantities.
“We’ve seen our fans through social media express their outrage about the bun-to-hot-dog ratio issue for years, and we know there must be a better way. We believe that the time for change is now and we are hopeful,” says Daniel Gotlib, Associate Director, Brand Building & Innovation, Kraft Heinz Company. “As the iconic condiment that has been making hot dogs complete for over 150 years, we saw an opportunity to champion this issue on behalf of hot dog lovers across North America and help show manufacturers why they need to put an end to unequal packs.
Fans can take part in the mission by signing Heinz's petition online.
