Keasbey, NJ., 2017-Jul-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wakefern’s summer interns took a recent field trip to Campbell’s corporate headquarters in Camden, NJ.
Nearly 70 Wakefern summer interns spent time in the company’s test kitchen and listened as Campbell’s executives relayed stories of the company’s roots, from the very first soup recipe (beefsteak tomato) to the inspiration for the company’s iconic red-and-white color scheme (a Cornell University football game).
The day-long educational field trip has become a tradition at Wakefern. The company’s interns visited Colgate-Palmolive last summer.
Special thanks to Campbell’s for hosting our interns on the trip!
