Subject: Anyone producing ketchup?


we are initiating a ketchup competition this year with judges from several
food magazines--its the first year out but we hope to bring more attention
to 
our national condiment and get more small scale ketchups onto the shelves.
Ideas, help and entries are welcomed.

The prizes aren't too impressive this year but we will upgrade them by next
year and possibly this year

the National King Ketchup Competition

The National King Ketchup Competition is hosted by the Eastern Native Seed
Conservancy at its Epicurean Tomato Fete in Lenox , MA  the first weekend
after 
Labor Day. It  will take place this year on September 7, 2003.  The
competition  is designed to foster both the reproduction of historic ketchup
styles, 
which before the advent of commercial ketchup numbered in the hundreds, and
to 
encourage creativity in the making of new styles of ketchup.  Ketchup is
distinctly an American condiment, and this competition is dedicated to
fostering this 
American tradition.

The contest is open to anyone who wishes to enter. There is no entry fee for
non-commercial producers in  2003.

For commercial producers who net under $75,000 in ketchup sales entry fee is
$35.  For commercial producers netting over $75,000 entry fee is $75.

Rules

Four entry  categories are open.

1. A red tomato ketchup based on an historical recipe using red hued
heirloom tomatoes.   Use of modern hybrids will result in disqualification.
Tomato 
varieties used must be clearly  desiginated.

2. A non-red tomato ketchup, including use of black tomatoes

3. An innovative ketchup using any combination of ingredients including
hisotric non-tomato ketchups

4. A red tomato ketchup using any variety of tomato.  This category is
particularly geared to commercial producers

One, two or three, or four  categories can be entered by any one company or
individual

No artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors, flavor enhancers  or
genetically modified ingredients may be used

The original maker must enter the ketchup.   If a commercial product  it may
be entered on behalf of a company with a desiginated contact person.

Two bottles of each ketchup type must be entered at minimum. Total contents
should be at  least 56 ounces net weight or six cups or 1.5 quarts.
Additional 
product is desireable for audience tasting.

Commercial ketchups should have their label covered with a removeable
covering such as an adhesive label.

Entrants should keep in mind the intended end use of the ketchup and include
this information with their entry form. This will help the judges in
evaluating the merits of each ketchup

Entries may be sent to the Eastern Native Seed Conservancy, 729 Ashley Falls
Road, Ashley Falls , MA  01222 and recieved by September 5, 2003.  Or they
