Bolivarian Ketchup

If you thought green ketchup was a gastronomic aberration, wait to see the latest on sauce development, courtesy of Hugo Chavez Venezuela.

Monagas State Governor Jose Gregorio Briceno, a Chavez allied, ordered the seizure of a Heinz Corporation plant arguing “public interest” reasons. The plant had been inactive for years and was recently offered to the government for sale. But why to buy something when you can just take it?

The Soviet Union owned Beluga, Castro Habana Club and now Chavez will have his own Bolivarian Ketchup following exactly the same product development model: go and steal.
