"Today's health conscious consumer wants to know what's in their food as well as what's not in their food," says Sue Mah, Registered Dietitian and President of Nutrition Solutions. "I'm happy to see that Campbell's Healthy Request soups are made with wholesome ingredients and are a source of fibre. Plus, the soups have no preservatives or artificial flavours."
"Campbell's® Healthy Request is a really important part of an even more open and transparent Campbell's," says Moya Brown, Vice President of Marketing at Campbell Company of Canada. "As we embark upon our 85th anniversary this November, we want to celebrate soup and Canadians' long standing love for Campbell's. Healthy Request brings to life our commitment to real food, highest quality ingredients, and great taste, all shared with Canadian consumers in an open and transparent way."
"Campbell Canada also plans to take steps to provide consumers with a wide range of information about our products – from the ingredients we use to how and where our food is made. This information will be available on www.whatsinmyfood.ca, set to launch in November 2015," adds Brown. "As part of Campbell's new corporate transparency initiative, we welcome consumers to 'taste what's inside' our Healthy Request soups, visit the Healthy Request website and engage with us in a two-way dialogue to tell us what they think!"
Campbell's Healthy Request soups are available at retailers across Canada including Sobey's, Safeway, Loblaws, Walmart, Metro, etc. for $3.29 each (suggested retail price).
