It might be going just a bit too far to say "Mmmm, mmmm, good!" but the Campbell Soup Co.'s decision to modernize operations in Camden is an encouraging long-range commitment.
Campbell Soup was founded in Camden in 1869 and has been a significant part of the city's economy for more than a century. While there was never any doubt about company headquarters staying in Camden, speculation has been rampant for years about a possible closing of production lines. Campbell's main plant in Camden was built in 1907. This and other old buildings in the company complex are not well suited for controlling costs.
