57 varieties of sauces. While riding a train in New York City in 1896, Henry Heinz saw a sign advertising 21 styles of shoes, which he thought was clever. Although Heinz was manufacturing more than 60 products at the time, Henry thought 57 was a lucky number. So, he began using the slogan "57 Varieties" in all his advertising. Today the company has more than 5,700 products around the globe, but still uses the magic number of "57."

Read here: The number 57 on a Heinz ketchup bottle represents the number of varieties of pickle the company once had.
57 Varieties of Heinz Ketchup
it stands for how many different types of pickles that they make
It stems from an advertising campaign. Although there were more than 60 products being produced, the number 5 was Henry Heinz's luck number and the number 7 was his wife's lucky number
In the early days of the Heinz company, they wanted to highlight the variety of their products. They chose the number 57 arbitrarily to show how many they had. The ad read "57 varieties" and the slogan "Heinz 57" stuck. The "57 varieties" referred to the number of products that they had, although at the time they did have more products than 57, but H.J. Heinz thought that it was a magical (faerie princess) number... An urban myth has it that if you tap the 57 on the side of the glass bottle in a restaurant, the ketchup will start to com out. This information is (not) yet to be evaluated by the FDA [Food and Drug Administration to nerd you out!] so there is no way to prove it.
I don't think there is one as such, but the brand is 57 varieties...

They actually have more, and that’s been true since before Henry John Heinz coined the “57 Varieties” slogan in 1896. By that time, the H.J. Heinz Company already had over 60 products, but the founder thought 57 sounded lucky. He took inspiration from an advertisement he’d seen on a train car, boasting “21 styles” of shoe.

Go here for an explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed-breed_dog Simply put, the correct term is "Heinz 57" not just "Heinz" as the number 57 is a reference to the number of (secret, therefore unknown) ingredients that make up the sauce. When used to describe animals (most often dogs) the term "Heinz 57" means the dog is a mutt or mongrel (of unknown or mixed breeds) and not a purebred.
