McDonald's is cutting ties with condiment giant Heinz after management changes there.

A former Burger King CEO became head of Heinz in June. Heinz is led by Bernardo Hees, who is also a partner at 3G Capital. 3G teamed up with Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway to buy Heinz earlier this year. Hees still serves as vice chairman of Burger King's board.

KPVI News 6 reached out to corporate media relations for Heinz to see if this arrangement would affect production in any way in Pocatello. Michael Mullen, Senior Vice President for Corporate and Government Affairs made the following statement:

“As a matter of policy, Heinz does not comment on relationships with customers.  All our foodservice customers globally remain valuable to the Company and are an important part of what has made the H.J. Heinz Company what it is today.  We continue to operate respecting every customer while upholding the high level of confidentiality and business ethics that the H.J. Heinz Company has built with our business partners over the years.”

The plant in Pocatello laid off 80 workers earlier this year.
