Our response to COVID-19

COVID-19

Our response to the COVID-19 pandemic has always started with the health and safety of our employees and their families. We also know that our retailers, consumers and communities are depending on us for food.

Here’s how we’re working across our business to make it happen:

Protecting our employees

We have protocols in place to address the health and safety of our employees against COVID-19, including health assessments, quarantines and enhanced cleaning procedures at our facilities. Learn more about what we’re doing to protect our employees.

Stepped up support for our team on the front lines

We know our employees on the front lines are doing mission critical work to provide food during the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2020 we announced expanded support for these teams.

Hiring to meet increased demand

We’re hiring to meet the increased demand. Find open jobs in our manufacturing and distribution centers across the country, and apply to join the Campbell team.

Helping the communities we call home

We have contributed over $9 million in cash and food to organizations across North America. Through this commitment, we can provide direct financial support to local food banks, pantries, or community organizations. We began distributing funds and/or food to organizations in March.

Our CEO Mark Clouse on our mission to serve

“The most important thing to know right now is that everything we do starts with the health and safety of our teams and their families. However, the mission can’t end there. We have an incredibly important role to play in this crisis and in our communities, providing food.” – Campbell’s President and CEO Mark Clouse

Watch Mark’s interviews on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” in March, “Mad Money” in April, and ABC News “What You Need to Know” in May, about our response to COVID-19.

Food safety: Ensuring our products are safe

COVID-19 is not considered a food safety concern, and consumers are at no risk of contracting the coronavirus from any food product. The CDC and the USDA state that there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 as a foodborne pathogen and the FDA is not aware of any reports of transmission through food or food packaging. We will continue to comply with all requirements and guidelines regarding sourcing and trade of material set by the relevant authorities.

We all want a house with a crowded table

Share the feeling of comfort and togetherness our food brings to homes across North America—even when we have to be apart.

Here’s to being together, until we’re together again. 

Our road to office re-entry

Our primary focus is the well-being and safety of our teams. As we plan for the re-entry of our employees at office-based locations around the country, we continue to follow the data and guidance from public health experts on our protocols. Our four U.S. corporate offices (located in Camden, New Jersey, Charlotte, North Carolina, Hanover, Pennsylvania, and Norwalk, Connecticut) are open to volunteers in accordance with our safety protocols (including mask requirements). Office capacity is capped at 25% occupancy to enable social distancing. Given the emergence of new, more contagious COVID-19 variants, we are adjusting the timing of our full office re-entry to mid-October 2021 at the earliest and will continue to follow the guidance of public health experts. We were previously targeting mid-September 2021.

We’ll continue working to support our employees, consumers and communities during this pandemic. Learn more about our overall response to COVID-19.
