Campbell Soup Is Investing $50M at Camden Headquarters

Campbell Soup Company is reimagining its Camden headquarters, its home for more than 150 years, with a $50 million investment. The company is moving and consolidating its Snacks offices in Charlotte, North Carolina and Norwalk, Connecticut to Camden. This will add approximately 330 jobs to Campbell’s existing workforce of 1,600. Construction on the expanded headquarters complex is expected to begin in March.

“We are thrilled to invest in our people, our facilities and our Camden community, which Campbell has called home for more than 150 years,” said Campbell’s President and CEO Mark Clouse. “We remain committed to our two-division operating model and are confident that being together in one headquarters is the best way for us to continue building a culture that unlocks our full growth potential. This investment will ensure Campbell remains a great place to work and a compelling destination for top talent.”

Gov. Phil Murphy commented, “Campbell is an iconic New Jersey company, and I’m pleased with their commitment to invest and grow in our state. This plan will create jobs, stimulate economic development, and strengthen Campbell’s roots in Camden where their efforts have played an essential role in the continued transformation of the city.”

Separate neighborhoods will be built for the Snacks and Meals & Beverages divisions. Corporate departments will also have neighborhoods. All facilities will be enhanced, including new furniture, workstation configurations, and upgraded technology to support a connected experience.

Campbell’s Dorrance Center will be turned into a state-of-the-art conference center that can hold larger meetings. The remodeled space will have a separate entrance and a reception area for special events.

Other changes include:

  • Maggie’s Place: A new campus center to serve as a casual social hub and alternative workspace. It is named after Pepperidge Farm founder, Margaret Rudkin.
  • Updated café: Added seating to make it more collaborative and adaptable.
  • Grab-and-go food and snacks: Pantries and buildings across campus will have food in addition to the coffee already present
  • Snacks R&D facility and pilot plant: A state-of-the-art space for Snacks marketing and R&D teams to drive innovation.
