Campbell Soup Company's North America Foodservice division today announced the launch of Campbell's Select Harvest 100 percent natural soups in Foodservice. The new soup line will offer consumers in hundreds of college campuses, office buildings, hospitals, and other institutions throughout the U.S. natural options when they are away from home.
“People are trying to eat healthier, even when they are away from home," says Taly Salamon, manager of innovation and business development for Campbell Soup Company. "Bringing our Select Harvest soups into foodservice allows us to offer more great tasting, 100 percent all natural options to people eating meals away from home."
Select Harvest soups' high-quality ingredients include 100 percent all-natural chicken stock, tangerine tomatoes, sweet basil, and other natural ingredients. Plus, Campbell has added a unique, lower sodium natural sea salt, which enables each Campbell's Select Harvest soup to meet the healthy sodium level of 480 mg. per 8 oz. serving while still delivering great taste.
Campbell's retail line of Select Harvest soups was the company's fastest growing soup line last year. The launch of Select Harvest soups in foodservice will help Campbell address the increasing demand for great-tasting and nutritious options in universities, offices, and other non-commercial operations.
As part of the product launch, Campbell's North America Foodservice division is sponsoring a "Culinary Me" sweepstakes for operators and a "Better Me" spa sweepstakes for consumers. The "Culinary Me" grand prize will be awarded to five operators, and will include a Culinary Package and Culinary Day at their operation hosted by a Campbell North America Foodservice chef. One consumer will win the "Better Me" grand prize, a spa getaway.
Campbell's Select Harvest foodservice soups are packaged by the case, each of which includes three, 4-pound, 100 percent recyclable plastic trays of soup. The soups are available now and are $31-$33 per case.
