History

Campbell's was founded in 1869 by Joseph A. Campbell and Abraham Anderson, an icebox manufacturer.[citation needed] The company was originally called the "Joseph A. Campbell Preserve Company" and produced canned tomatoes, vegetables, jellies, soups, condiments, and minced meats. Year 1869 (MDCCCLXIX) is a common year starting on Friday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Wednesday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ...

Forcemeat is a mixture of ground, raw or cooked meat, poultry, fish, vegetables or fruit mixed with bread crumbs and seasoning. ...


By 1896, Anderson left the partnership, leaving Campbell to reorganize and form a new company, Joseph Campbell & Co. In 1897, a nephew of one of the new Campbell partners, Dr. John T. Dorrance, began working for the company at a wage of $7.50 a week.[citation needed] Dorrance, a gifted chemist with degrees from MIT and Göttingen University, Germany, developed a commercially viable method for condensing soup by halving the quantity of its heaviest ingredient: water.[citation needed] Year 1896 (MDCCCXCVI) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (link will display calendar). ... 1897 (MDCCCXCVII) was a common year starting on Friday (see link for calendar). ...

Soup was not a popular staple in the American diet at the turn of the century, but it was in Europe.[citation needed] However, Dorrance's condensed soups quickly became successful among the public for their convenience and their price, 10 cents a can.[citation needed] The product competed at the Paris Exposition in 1900 and was awarded a gold medal, an image of which still appears on the label.

In 1898, Herberton Williams, a Campbell's executive, convinced the company to adopt a cherry red and bright white color scheme, because he was taken by the crisp colors of the Cornell University football team's uniforms.[1]To this day, the layout of the can, with its red and white design and the metallic gold medal seal from the 1900 Paris Exhibition, has changed very little.

Campbell Soup became one of largest food companies in the world under the leadership of William Beverly Murphy. He was elected executive vice president of Campbell Soup in 1949 and was president and CEO from 1953 to 1972. While at Campbell's Soup Company, he took the corporation public and increased its brand portfolio to include Pepperidge Farm's pale breads, golden brown cookies, and buttery crackers, Franco-American's rich gravies and pastas, V8 vegetable juices, Swanson broths, and Godiva's rich dark and milky brown Chocolates.

Campbell Soup invested heavily in advertising since its inception, and many of its promotional campaigns have proven value in the Americana collectible advertising market. Perhaps best known are the "Campbell Kids" who though color scheme represented the recognizable soup. Ronald Reagan was a spokesman for V8 when it was first introduced.[citation needed] A "pretty groovy deal" in 1968 offered a paper Souper Dress available for $1.00 and two labels.[citation needed] Also produced were Campbell's Menu Books and Help for the Hostess series of cookbooks. One of the longest lasting recipes, but certainly odd to modern tastebuds, is the recipe for a maroon colored Tomato Soup Cake. // Advert redirects here. ...

In addition to collectible advertising, the company has also had notable commercial sponsorships. Among these was The Campbell Playhouse, which had previously been Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre On The Air. Campbell's took over as sponsor of the radio theatre program in December of 1938. The Campbell Playhouse was a sponsored continuation of the Mercury Theater on the Air, a direct result of the instant publicity from the War of the Worlds panic. ...

In the UK and Ireland, the cans will be rebranded as Batchelors Condensed Soup from March 2008(since the license for the brand name expires in mid 2008) but labels will carry: "Formerly Campbell's. Same great taste." Premier Foods, St. Albans, Hertfordshire bought Campbell Soup Company in the UK and Ireland, for £ 450m ($ 830m), but not the brand. 22 flavours will be branded as Batchelors but recipes will remain the same. Also, US-based Campbell Soup Company will still produce Campbell's Condensed Soup but cannot sell the product in the UK for another 5 years.

In Pop Art

The ubiquitous red-and-white icon became fodder for Andy Warhol, the 1960s pop counter-culture artist, in his famous series of iconoclastic Campbell's Soup Can images from 1962 to 1968. Each can, hand painted to perfection and almost machine like in quality glorified the simplistic white and red cans with their gold seal as an American icon. Every detail was considered just as the original down to the gold and black script of the word ‘SOUP’ to the simple red print of each flavor. These images are some of the artist's best work, many of which are on display at the Andy Warhol Museum. Andrew Warhola (August 6, 1928 — February 22, 1987), better known as Andy Warhol, was an American artist who was a central figure in the movement known as Pop art. ...

To celebrate this, in 2004, the company released a series of four limited edition cans, with different labels than the regular red and white. The new ones were in silkscreen colors, the top half being one shade and bottom another. Orange and pink were one combination, and shades of blue another. This marked one of the few times thus far in the company's 100+ year history that the labels have deviated from their standard look. Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Health

Many canned soups, including Campbell's condensed and Chunky varieties, have relatively high doses of sodium and thus are not desirable for those on low-sodium diets. However Campbell's Healthy Request Soups and Low Sodium Soups have reduced sodium levels.[3]. These soups use sea salt as one of the methods in lowering sodium. In the fall of 2007, Campbell's was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for their efforts in lowering sodium levels, from Blood Pressure Canada.[4] For sodium in the diet, see Salt. ...

CAMPBELL SOUP COMPANY v. Kathy Jo GATES (2040 words)
Because the evidence of Campbell's liability was not substantial enough to warrant the trial court submitting the matter to the jury, we reverse and dismiss the judgment.
Gates's case, Campbell Soup Company moved for a directed verdict on the grounds that no evidence of fault on the part of Campbell Soup Company had been presented and that there was no basis on which the jury could infer any defect in the product at the time it left the manufacturer's hands.
Gates in her effort to assign liability to Campbell Soup Company was, simply put, not substantial enough to negate the existence of other possibilities of sources of contamination and therefore requires the setting aside of the jury's verdict.
