Campbell Soup Company is a company that makes soup and other various foodstuffs. It was founded in 1869 by Joseph A. Campbell, a fruit merchant from Bridgeton, New Jersey, and Abraham Anderson, an icebox manufacturer from Camden, New Jersey. Originally called Anderson & Campbell, the men canned tomatoes, vegetables, jellies and mince meat. In 1876 they sold their first product under the name of "Campbell's Soups."

In 1895 John T. Dorrance, a nephew of the owners who had been hired as a chemist for the company received a patent for concentrated soup which allowed it to be sold in cans rather than glass jars at a cheaper price per serving beyond what anyone else could offer (source: John T. Dorrance Biography).

In 1897, the year after it went public, Campbell Soup Company sold a record 67 million cans of soup (source: The History of Campbell Soup Company). By 1915 six varieties of soups were being sold in the U.S. and Canada. In 1928 one-step canned process cheese food was invented, followed by "Miracle Whip" in 1931 and Prego spaghetti sauce in 1937. In 1958 Pepperidge Farm was acquired by Campbell Soup Company and became their own division focusing on cookies and pastries at first, but eventually expanding to include breads, crackers and other baked goods as well as frozen pastry items.
