Digital News Report – Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) announced eight more varieties of their Health Request soups. The new soup flavors are part of 35 new products that Campbell’s is introducing to consumers in the soup and simple meals business this fall.
The Healthy Request line of soups come in the condensed, Chunky, and Select Harvest brands. There are 33 varieties under the Healthy Request for having less salt. The soup is lower in sodium than other products and contains 410 milligrams of sodium per serving. This reduced sodium meets the US government guidelines to allow the product to be labeled as healthy food and allows Campbell to get the American Heart Association check-mark of approval on the can.
The company said that the Healthy Request soup line has seen a 21 percent growth in sales over the last five years. They put this line among their top-performing varieties in the Campbell’s soup portfolio.
The newly added condensed soups with Healthy Request reduced sodium are the Bean with Bacon soup and Cheddar Cheese soup. The Harvest Tomato with Basil soup and Whole Grain Pasta Fagioli soup has been added to the Campbell’s Select Harvest Healthy Request version. Campbell’s Chunky soups have four new Healthy Request varieties added to the line; they are the Hearty Italian-Style Wedding soup, Beef with Country Vegetables soup, Split Pea & Ham soup, and Roasted Chicken with Country Vegetables soup.
Campbell’s has over 150 products that meet the US government standards to qualify as healthy foods. Some of the products that gained the government approval for healthy food include all V8® juices and SpaghettiOs® pastas, and most Prego® Italian sauces and Pepperidge Farm® breads.
