Swanson® Flavor Boost™ and Unsalted Cooking Stock Provide New Flavoring Options for Cooks

Campbell Soup Company (NYSE: CPB) today added two new products to the Swanson® stock and broth portfolio: Swanson® Flavor Boost™ concentrated broths and Swanson Unsalted Cooking Stocks. These new items are just the latest in a long line of innovations that the Swanson brand has brought to market, including aseptic packaged broths, all-natural chicken broth and lower sodium broth.

These new Swanson broth concentrates and stocks represent five of the nearly three dozen new products Campbell is introducing this fall.

New Swanson Flavor Boost delivers delicious concentrated broth flavor in a convenient liquid packet. It is 100 percent natural with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, and no MSG added.* The Campbell chefs developed Swanson Flavor Boost to be used as a finishing touch in meal preparation, bringing a balanced, seasoned, flavor to stir-fried or skillet dishes, pasta, vegetables and more, without adding excess liquid. It is available in three flavor varieties: chicken, vegetable and beef flavored.

While Swanson Flavor Boost is an ideal way to round out a dish, stock is an essential foundation for a number of main course dishes, gravies and sauces, and is prized for its robust, meaty notes. New Swanson Unsalted Cooking Stocks offer an easy way to incorporate the delicious taste of homemade stock into meals, without adding salt or having to stand over a simmering pot for hours on end. These stocks are available in two varieties: chicken and beef flavored. Swanson Unsalted Stocks are 100 percent natural and contain no added MSG.*

“The Swanson brand is committed to addressing the changing needs and demands of today’s cooks. In keeping our tradition of stocking kitchens with premium, high-quality products, we’re thrilled to add these great-tasting, convenient products to our family of cooking essentials,” said Mike Barkley, Vice President of Marketing, Cooking Soups and Broths. “Now there is truly something for just about any taste preference or level of cooking expertise.”

Swanson Flavor Boost and Unsalted Stocks will be available at grocery stores nationwide in October 2011. Swanson Flavor Boost has a suggested retail price of $3.99, for eight concentrated liquid broth packets. Swanson Unsalted Cooking Stocks have a suggested retail price of $3.15, for a 26-oz. re-sealable aseptic carton. Swanson Flavor Boost and Unsalted Cooking Stocks will be shelved in the soup aisle along with other Swanson broths and stocks.
