While Campbell Keeps Cooking Up Impressive Sales Growth, Inflationary Headwinds Cap Profits

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Erin Lash |

Since joining Campbell in January 2019, CEO Mark Clouse’s tenure has been fraught with change. Not only has Campbell parted ways with its fresh business and the bulk of its international operations while also working to steady its core meals, beverages, and snacking arms, it has also navigated a global pandemic. But we don’t attribute its recent performance (21% consumption growth on a three-year stack basis) as merely a byproduct of heightened consumer stock-ups of essential fare since March 2020. Rather, we think Campbell’s prudent strategic focus (leveraging technology, data insights, and artificial intelligence to bring consumer-valued new products to the shelf in a timely fashion while also reducing complexity, investing in automation, and optimizing its supply chain and manufacturing network) has set it on a sound course.

Company Profile CPB

Business Description

With a history that dates back around 150 years, Campbell Soup is now a leading manufacturer and marketer of branded convenience food products, most notably soup. The firm's product assortment includes well-known brands like Campbell's, Pace, Prego, Swanson, V8, and Pepperidge Farm. Following the sale of its international snacking operations, which wrapped in calendar 2019, the firm derives nearly all of its sales from its home turf. Campbell has made a handful of acquisitions to reshape its product mix the past few years, including the tie-up with Snyder's-Lance (completed in March 2018), which enhances its exposure to the faster-growing on-trend snack food aisle, complementing its Pepperidge Farm lineup.
