According to the Grocer (?), Heinz is considering adopting the name Sandwich Cream to better reflect how the country uses the condiment and to appeal to "younger shoppers". The condiment became a national favourite during the 1940s, Heinz says, when ketchup was unavailable and salad cream was used to add flavour to bland war-time rations.UK sales of the brand dipped 5.4% to ?28.8m in 2017. But there was outcry in the 1990s when leaked documents revealed that Heinz was considering discontinuing production of the "zingy" sauce, generating so much publicity that Heinz re-launched Salad Cream with a ?10m advertising campaign.In 2015, Heinz merged with the US food giant Kraft.Joel Hughes, UK sauces brand build lead at Kraft Heinz, added: "As a market leading business, Kraft Heinz continues to audit its portfolio in order to meet the needs of consumers."There are consumers now who haven't grown up with the brand in the household and just don't know about the iconic zingy flavour or what to eat it with."There is now a consultation under way on the new name and an official announcement is expected in September.
