Default I say....HP is made in Spain

Eighteen months after axing HP Sauce in Birmingham on the grounds that production costs would be cheaper in Holland, foods conglomerate Heinz has begun making the world-famous condiment in Spain.

The company initially said the move from Aston to the Netherlands would save it £25 million over 10 years, but yesterday Heinz admitted that more than six million 450 gramme bottles of the sauce are manufactured each year at La Landa in northern Spain.

Spokesman Nigel Dickie said it was more efficient to use Heinz’s long-standing outlet in the country to produce the popular plastic top-down bottles, which are shipped to Britain and sold in supermarkets. The rest of the HP Sauce range continues to be made in Holland.

Mr Dickie insisted neither the new location nor the Spanish water would make any difference to the unique taste.

He added: “Wherever it is made, exactly the same recipe is used with the same internationally-sourced high quality ingredients. I would challenge anyone to tell the difference. It is different water but that doesn’t play too much part in the recipe given the amount of vinegar used and other ingredients.


I know Mars bar taste ugggggggggggggh having been made in Spain.

Any more of UK staple foods made here in Spain that you know of that we don't, And you pay a fortune for in the Brit shops.

The sauce of the above info was The Birmingham Post.
