It is all part of the celebration of what’s new from Campbell’s Condensed soup, which includes:




  • Chefs’ Creations: The Campbell Chefs were put to the test – reduce sodium in even more of their soups while maintaining great taste. The result was 21 more soups that now have less sodium, by adding sea salt that delivers the great flavor people love, while reducing sodium by at least 25 percent in each bowl.

  • Painting the Store Red & White: Shoppers will be surrounded by the exciting news on Campbell’s Condensed soups. Shelf signage in poultry, dairy and bread departments will help get shoppers in the soup aisle, where super-sized floor graphics will complement new shelving.

Additionally, more than three million packages of chicken breast and over four million gallons of milk will feature an on-pack promotion showcasing a Campbell’s Condensed soup recipe and cost-saving coupon.

  • Shopping Made Easy: The soup aisle can overwhelm, but now, no more! Thanks to an easier-to-shop gravity-fed shelving system, featuring new labels with bold food photography that is organized into four convenient categories – Classic Favorites, Taste Sensations, Healthy & Delicious, and Healthy Kids – it will be easier for people to find what they need.

  • Recipes that are Sure to Inspire: CampbellsKitchen.com offers hundreds of recipes to help keep meals exciting while solving the daily challenge, “what’s for dinner?” From quick and easy sandwiches like roast beef with melted provolone cheese to Mediterranean-inspired fare such as Chicken Balsamico, the experts at Campbell’s Kitchen have been hard at work creating recipes you’d never imagine were made with soup.
