Rubies in the Rubble come to Hippo

Let's talk ketchup

We’re (super) proud to announce our brand new ketchup supplier: say hello to the Rubies in the Rubble!

Rubies in the Rubble have been rescuing fruit to make condiments with a conscience since 2011, saving 6,848,138 fruits and veggies that would have otherwise gone to waste – simply because they don’t fit retailers ‘beauty’ standards.

“After 5 years in the making we’re proud to have developed a Ketchup which matches the world’s best in taste, quality, and consistency, that’s also sustainable. We’ve focused on the two largest ingredients in the world’s most popular condiment – sugar and water – and replaced them with fruit and vegetables that would have otherwise been discarded.”

This means that every time you ask for ketchup at any of our pubs, you get 50% less added sugar, 3x more fruit and 100% natural ingredients. Oh, and you do good too. Win-win.

To kick things off, we’re offering you the chance to win a year’s supply of Rubies’ Ketchup. All you have to do is 1. take a photo of your dish (include the ketchup ramekin!) at any of our hippo watering holes; 2. share it on Instagram, tagging @hippo_inns and @rubbiesintherubble. The competition ends 22/02 so get snapping!

We will announce the winner on Instagram by 25/02.
