CAMDEN, N.J. — Campbell Soup Co. announced Thursday that it had appointed a new SVP, general counsel.

“Adam brings a diverse and extensive range of experience to his role as general counsel, having practiced law in both the public and private sectors, which will be an asset as we work to reshape Campbell for future growth,” Campbell’s president and CEO Denise Morrison said. “I welcome his perspective and look forward to working with him to build on the strong foundation we have established with our legal department.”

NPD research points to growing appeal of ‘healthy’ snacks

BY DSN STAFF

CHICAGO — New research from the NPD Group’s food industry research is showing that whatever a consumer is snacking on, it’s important they think it’s healthy. According to NPD’s Future of Eating report, the biggest draw for consumers is whether a snack has perceived health benefits. 
 
Since 2006, the consumption of better-for-you snacks like yogurt and sports bars has gone up 14%, and NPD says that these snacks’ consumption will surpass that of sweet snacks by 2018. The big drivers of healthier snacking, according to the report, are young consumers, particularly those under 48 years old. 
 
“Snacking today is a prevalent behavior and there is an opportunity in every snack category for manufacturers to call out the specific health benefits — from desirable ingredients to clean labeling,” Darren Seifer, NPD’s food and beverage industry analyst, said. “There is also a generational slant to take into account for each category when positioning and marketing snack foods.”
