Campbell Soup Company History
From Wikipedia – Campbell Soup Company
Campbell Soup Company, doing business as Campbell’s, is an American processed food and snack company. The company is most closely associated with its flagship canned soup products; however, through mergers and acquisitions, it has grown to become one of the largest processed food companies in the U.S. With a wide variety of products under its flagship Campbell’s brand as well as other brands like Pepperidge Farm, Snyder’s of Hanover, V8, and Swanson. Under its brands, Campbell’s produces soups and other canned meals, baked goods, beverages, and snacks.
The company was started in 1869 by Joseph A. Campbell, a fruit merchant from Bridgeton, New Jersey, and Abraham Anderson, an icebox manufacturer from South Jersey. They produced canned tomatoes, vegetables, jellies, soups, condiments, and minced meats.
In 1898, Herberton Williams, a Campbell’s executive, convinced the company to adopt a carnelian red and bright white color scheme, because he was taken by the crisp carnelian red color of the Cornell University football team’s uniforms. To this day, the layout of the can, with its red and white design and the metallic bronze medal seal from the 1900 Paris Exhibition, has changed very little, with the exception of the French phrase on the top of the bronze seal that said “Exposition-Universelle-Internationale” which was changed to the English name of the exhibition as “Paris International Exposition.”
