Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Campbell Soup Company Sacramento Plant records document the plant's culture and history from 1948 to 2013. The majority of the collection is made up of photographs of plant activities and employee events, and company publications, including annual reports, newsletters, magazines, and anniversary celebrations. Also included are an employee scrapbook and various food industry magazines.
Joseph Campbell and Abram Anderson formed Campbell Soup Company in 1869. Their first plant was located in Camden, New Jersey, and the company went through several changes in name and ownership before it began to expand its products and plants across the United States and the world. In 1947, Campbell opened its third soup plant, and its first on the West Coast, in Sacramento, California.
