A Rich History of Campbell's
The Campbell Soup Company began in 1869 in Camden, New Jersey, USA.
The company was originally called the Joseph A Campbell Preserve Company and made canned tomatoes and vegetables, jellies, soups, condiments and minced meats.
In 1897, a major landmark occurred when Arthur Dorrance, the general manager of the company, reluctantly hired his 24-year-old nephew. Dr. John T. Dorrance, a chemist who had trained in Europe, was so determined to join Campbell’s that he agreed to pay for laboratory equipment out of his own pocket and accept a token salary of just $7.50 per week. In 1897, Dr John T Dorrance invented condensed soup. This innovation revolutionised the soup industry.
The Campbell Soup Company is famous for its high quality products. In 1876, the company was awarded a medal for quality at the Centennial Exhibition. In 1900, Campbell's soups won the Gold Medallion for excellence at the Paris Exposition. This medal has been featured on cans ever since.
Our rich history is filled with various milestones. The creation of the famous Red & White soup label and Andy Warhol's famous Pop Art depiction of a soup can are just a few of those great moments.
