Daddies is a brand of ketchup and brown sauce in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. The brown sauce is similar to HP Sauce, but without tamarind, without tomatoes and with less malt vinegar but more spirit vinegar.
The brown sauce product, known as Daddies Favourite, was launched in 1904, and the ketchup was launched in 1930. The brand is now owned by the H. J. Heinz Company, having been bought as part of the acquisition of HP Foods from previous owner Groupe Danone in 2005. Like HP Sauce, production of Daddies Favourite has been moved to the Netherlands.
While both brands remain solid competitors in the UK marketplace - with strong regional popularity in the Midlands, Wales and the West Country - Daddies Ketchup trails the dominant marketing leader, the better known Heinz Ketchup.
