U.S. soup sales increase, says Campbell.
Also increased were Campbell's earnings from continuing operations for the quarter, up to $162 million from $157 million, before the restructuring charge. Campbell hopes to expand soup consumption with the introduction of ready-to-serve lines such as, tomato soup in reseable plastic containers and microwavable single-serve bowls. Campbell also says its V8 Splash-brand beverage continues to deliver outstanding growth and is now the number two shelf-stable juice beverage in U.S. grocery stores.
