Campbell’s Culinary Team Crafts New Soup Recipe Featuring Orange Tomatoes, Roasted Garlic, Sage and Rosemary
CAMDEN, N.J., Oct 26, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Campbell Soup Company (NYSE: CPB) today announced the national availability of new Campbell’s® condensed Harvest Orange Tomatosoup, an artisanal transformation of a classic favorite. Campbell’s Harvest Orange Tomatosoup is one of the 35 new products Campbell is introducing in its U.S. Soup and Simple Meals business this fall.
The new recipe was created by Campbell’s culinary team, led by Thomas Griffiths, CMC, Senior Executive Chef and Director of Campbell’s Culinary and Baking Institute. Chef Griffiths developed the unique recipe using orange tomatoes grown from proprietary seeds cultivated at Campbell’s Agricultural Research Center in Davis, Calif. These are among several unique colored tomato varieties that Campbell uses in its products.
Campbell first made the Harvest Orange Tomato soup recipe available last year in select markets. Based on the overwhelmingly positive response, the company decided to expand distribution nationwide.
“It’s easy to create a new classic when we begin with an iconic soup like Tomato, which is enjoyed by more than 25 million people each week,” said Chef Griffiths. “We set out to create a distinct and vibrant soup that offers a uniquely-delicious taste — a more sophisticated version of an American favorite. Now, people can enjoy both tomato soups each week.”
Chef Griffiths blended a perfect balance of herbs and spices for Harvest Orange Tomato soup, bringing out the natural flavors of the orange tomatoes with sage and rosemary and a touch of roasted garlic.
