There is a lot of equipment and conveyors that need to be cleaned and sanitized every day. I saw a few green tomatoes in the lines but eventually it was hand-picked. Next time I put ketchup on my burger or fries, I'll look back at the process. Very impressive.
It's amazing that all these machines can do this job so quickly. If I had to stand there for 8 hours and pick the tomatoes, I would go crazy. I didn't know we ate or made this much ketchup. It's like a tomato nightmare.
