Hundreds of new Campbell Soup Co jobs are expected to relocate to New Jersey with the consolidation of snack business offices in Connecticut and North Carolina, the food giant's officials announced.
Campbell's is moving an estimated 330 jobs to its Camden location, bringing the total jobs there to 1,600.
"We’re reimagining our Camden Headquarters, our home for more than 150 years, and investing $50 million to make a great space even better," the company said in a press statement on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
The company is consolidating its Snacks offices in Charlotte, NC, and Norwalk, CT. "With one headquarters, we’ll accelerate our plan to build a winning team and culture by investing in our campus and our people."
Construction in Camden will start in March, the company said.
Tim Sullivan, New Jersey's CEO of the Economic Development Authority, called it "big, great news" and "a vote of confidence" in Gov. Phil Murphy's Administration.
