The Framlingham singer’s love for ketchup is well known but which Suffolk made options should he be considering
Framlingham singer Ed Sheeran’s love for Heinz Ketchup has hit the headlines again as The Sun reported that the Castle on the Hill singer has his assistants carry a bottle around with him wherever he goes.
Ed’s love for the red sauce is well known, with the singer even having a tattoo of its logo on his left arm.
However, with Heinz being produced by American food giant Kraft, we decided to look at which sauces Ed should be trying if he wanted to stay closer to home.
If he is intent on sticking with the red sauce then Rendlesham-based Stokes Sauces believes it could have the sauce for Ed.
“One of our most popular products is our award-winning tomato ketchup,” the firm said.
“We use real Italian tomatoes, and for every 100g of finished product we manage to squeeze in 200g of tomatoes, making it really, really tomatoey.

“If you (or Ed!) prefer yours with a twist, we also do chipotle, curry, chilli and – my favourite – Bloody Mary Ketchup.”
The Bloody Mary ketchup takes its name from the popular cocktail and is made with vodka and Worcestershire sauce.
However, if Ed fancies having another condiment spiced up then Stokes also does a range of quirky mayonnaises.
Another Rendlesham company which could tempt Ed is the Salubrious Sauce company, with its own range of sauces which blend the unusual with the traditional.
“If he is adamant on sticking on Heinz then he could try our chip shop curry sauce,” said Salubrious founder Jim Fennell.
Like Ed, Jim hails from Framlingham and believes that it is about time Ed gives them a go.
As well as traditional curry and horseradish sauces, Salubrious offers a breakfast sauce which could replace Ed’s ketchup on his full English.
The breakfast sauce made by Salubrious is said to taste something like a mix of tomato, brown and chilli sauces, all in one.
“It’s a unique flavour,” said Jim.
If Ed does like his sauces a little bit hotter then maybe a bottle from Ipswich market traders East Coast Chilli Company will tempt him with flavours from the mild mango chilli up to the extra hot habanero and naga chilli sauce.
It seems like there is a lot of options for Ed to pick from in Suffolk should he ever choose to change from his regular bottle of ketchup.
