Food Maker Campbell To Lay Off 415 Employees

Campbell Soup Company World Headquarters

New Jersey-based Campbell Soup has plans to cut 415 jobs as part of a restructuring effort.

The company aims to strengthen growth, improve return on invested capital, and enhance its manufacturing and distribution network. 

Campbell will reduce the size of its Jeffersonville, Indiana, site and close its Tualatin, Oregon, site in phases. 

The Oregon facility is expected to cease operations by July 2026. 

The first phase will affect 120 of the 330 employees at the Oregon plant starting in August this year.

In Indiana, the plant will specialize in the Late July brand of tortilla chips, while kettle potato chip production will move to Campbell's Charlotte, North Carolina, and Hanover, Pennsylvania plants.

This change will result in about 85 of the 230 employees at the Indiana plant losing their jobs by July this year.

Campbell is also investing approximately $230 million in capital improvements at newer, more efficient facilities through fiscal 2026, which would create 210 new jobs across the company. 

Additionally, the company plans to expand Goldfish cracker production at its Richmond, Utah plant, with operations expected to begin by the end of 2024.

As of July 30 last year, Campbell Soup employed around 14,500 people.
