- Committed To Our Community
From our family to families across Canada.
Campbell values our long-standing relationship within the community. That’s why we’re involved in so many community-based programs that help benefit Canadians across the country. On top of being dedicated to raising awareness of the issue of hunger through our food bank partnerships, we’re also helping to nourish young minds through our Labels for Education program and making our workplace and manufacturing processes more sustainable.
Campbell Canada and Daily Bread Food Bank team up to help Canadians find work within the food service industry.
Campbell Canada is proud to partner with Daily Bread Food Bank’s Food Service Training program, offering both funding and in-kind support. This program helps individuals involved with Daily Bread Food Bank to get the training they need to find careers in the food service industry. Among other things, trainees learn how to use equipment, ingredient preparation, baking and hot and cold meal preparation.
Commitment to hunger relief
Because of who we are and the food we make, we have a responsibility to help alleviate hunger.
We know hunger is a complex issue. But Campbell Canada is helping by doing what we can as a food company to ease the impact – even if it’s for just one meal. We’re also raising awareness and inspiring Canadians to get involved. To learn about our latest efforts, visit our Facebook page.
Labels For Education®
Campbell in the kitchen could mean laptops in the classroom.
Labels For Education is a program that awards free educational equipment to schools in exchange for proofs of purchase from the Campbell family of brands. It’s fun, easy and a great way for students, families and members of the community work together for a common goal.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Rewarding.
Long before environmental sustainability was top of mind, Campbell developed an early method of sustainable food packaging – Condensed soup. That spirit of innovation still applies today.
In 2011, Campbell saved more than 4.5 million pounds in steel, plastic and paper packaging materials, eliminated nearly 29,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions at its manufacturing operations and reduced greenhouse gas emissions per unit of food produced by more than 4 percent. Campbell also reduced water used by 3% and energy used by 2% per unit of food produced.
By installing a High Pressure Low Volume system to reduce water and energy consumption during sanitation activities we’ve reduced water usage in our Toronto plant
We continually strive to reduce our total solid waste. So far we’ve managed to reduce it by hundreds of tons and have reused or recycled almost half of our entire water consumption.
Most of our packaging is recyclable. We have also reduced packaging in many other ways as well:
- We’ve reduced can thickness saving 1,205 tons of steel per year and have also reduced can ‘ends’ thickness – saving an additional 691 tons.
- By using thinner shrink-wrap, we eliminated 15 tons of plastic annually (20% reduction). Additionally, 160 tons of plastic liners and wrap are recycled.
- By switching from trays to bottom pads for stacking our product we’ve achieved a 48% reduction in the use of corrugated cardboard, saving 2,000 trees.
- We’ve also reduced the amount of PET material in Beverage bottles by 33%
For more than 20 years, Campbell Canada has been implementing energy conservation programs at our Toronto plant including further reductions in 2011.
By installing a condensing economizer we’ve reduced GGE 2,200 metric tons per year.
Almost 70% of Campbell Canada vegetable ingredients (by weight) come from local farms within 3 hours of our Toronto plant. That means that every year more than 5 million kg of fresh carrots, 6 million kg of fresh potatoes and 2 million kg of fresh mushrooms are sourced within 100 miles of our plant.
