Robert: Heinz launches petition to have equal number of hot dogs and buns in packages

Heinz has launched what they are calling their “Heinz Hot Dog Pact”, a petition “calling on big bun and big wiener companies to finally sell buns and wieners in even packs.”
“We’ve seen our fans through social media express their outrage about the bun-to-hot-dog ratio issue for years, and we know there must be a better way. We believe that the time for change is now and we are hopeful,” says Daniel Gotlib, associate director of brand building and innovation for the Kraft Heinz Company. “As the iconic condiment that has been making hot dogs complete for over 150 years, we saw an opportunity to champion this issue on behalf of hot dog lovers across North America and help show manufacturers why they need to put an end to unequal packs.”
But why is there an uneven ratio of hot dogs:buns in the first place? (Usually 8 buns in a package versus 10 hot dogs)
The basic explanation is packaging priorities differ for meat producers and bakers.
