Founded in 1869 in Pennsylvania, my first product was horseradish. In those days, many considered tomatoes an exotic Mexican fruit called "love apples." I changed that, introducing ketchup in 1876 (followed by soups and baby food in 1931). Today I am a $14 billion giant, featuring brands such as Classico, Lea & Perrins, Ore-Ida, Smart Ones, Bagel Bites and Wyler's. I also offer foods sold under the following licensed names: Weight Watchers, Boston Market, T.G.I. Friday's, Jack Daniel's and Linda McCartney. I sell about 650 million bottles of ketchup yearly under my own name. Who am I?
