Heinz has been one of Wigan’s biggest employers for many decades with a factory first in Standish and then its massive plant at Kitt Green which produces billions of baked beans a year to this day.

This picture gallery celebrates its workers over the decades, from the 1950s through to the famous royal visit in 2009 to celebrate the Kitt Green operation’s golden anniversary.
