KEY INGREDIENTS

Lean meat

We use lean cuts of chicken, beef and turkey in our Healthy Request® soups. All our meat is from USDA inspected producers in the U.S.A however, we will be transitioning to beef from Brazil in January 2016.

Grains, Legumes & Vegetables

All Healthy Request® soups are a source of fibre. Four of our six varieties contain a full serving of vegetables per 250ml.

Salt & Sodium

Salt enhances the flavours in foods. All Healthy Request® soups have 480 mg of sodium per 250 ml serving. Health Canada has created Guiding Benchmark Sodium Reduction Levels for Processed Foods. The average sodium level for soup sold in Canada should be 620 mg per 250 mL serving.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED INGREDIENTS


In Canada, approximately 90% of all canola, corn, soybean and sugar beet crops are grown from genetically modified seeds. Farmers have been using these seeds for more than 20 years as they reduce costs and improve yields.

Healthy Request® soups contain ingredients that may be made from these crops. Some are listed below. Not all of these ingredients are used in all varieties and most are used in small quantities.

Canola

- vegetable oil from canola

Corn

- modified corn starch, citric acid

Soybean

- soybean oil, soy protein concentrate, soy lecithin

Non-GMO Ingredients

All other ingredients including tomatoes, wheat, and vegetables are not genetically modified.

WHO GROWS & MAKES THE SOUP

We buy many of our ingredients from farmers in Canada and the U.S.A.

Almost 70% of our vegetable ingredients such as carrots and potatoes (by weight) are sourced from local farms within a 3.5 hour radius of our Toronto plant, where we make soup for all of Canada, including Healthy Request.

We employ over 700 people at our location in Toronto where we make our products.

PACKAGING

Healthy Request soups are available in cans.

Steel cans are among the safest, most convenient, affordable and environmentally sustainable forms of packaging. The steel cans we use are recyclable and contain 30% recycled steel.

Our cans are coated on the inside with a thin layer of plastic to separate the food from the can. This keeps the food safe and preserves its nutritional value. Often this lining contains a substance called bisphenol A or BPA. Based on extensive studies, Health Canada and many other regulatory agencies around the world have said that BPA is safe to use in packaging. We understand that some people would prefer to avoid BPA and we make many products in packaging that doesn’t use the substance.

Healthy Request Vegetable Turkey

OUR PACKAGING AND BPA

We understand that some people would prefer to avoid bisphenol A (BPA), although FDA has determined that it’s safe to use in food packaging. Historically, BPA has been used in food packaging to line metal cans and to preserve the food’s taste and its nutritional value.

PET bottles, pouches and cartons such as those used for V8® beverages, Swanson® broths and Campbell’s sauces are (and have always been) non-BPA packaging.

Campbell has transitioned to non-BPA lining in all of our aluminum and steel cans in the United States and Canada.

The containers of a few other products have metal components that have limited food contact points but are key to ensuring that the lids remain tight. BPA is used as a coating on that metal but in small amounts and we continue to work on packaging alternatives.
