CAMDEN, N.J. -- January 23, 2013

Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) has been named to the Global 100 Most
Sustainable Corporations in the World in a ranking by Corporate Knights, a
media and investment research company. Campbell is one of ten U.S. companies,
and the only U.S. food and beverage company, to make the Global 100. The
Global 100 drew companies from 22 countries on six continents and inclusion in
the top 100 puts the company in the top 2.5 percent of the 4000 evaluated.

"The Global 100 recognizes how Campbell integrates corporate responsibility
into business strategy,” said Dave Stangis, Campbell's Vice President, Public
Affairs and Corporate Responsibility. “We continue to strengthen our long-term
commitment to creating value for our business and society as a sustainable and
socially responsible company.”

Corporate Knights ranks the Global 100  using a two-step methodology,
selecting companies on information such as sustainability disclosure
practices, financial health and product types, then scoring them by
sector-specific key performance indicators primarily related to energy, water,
waste metrics and community engagement. Key Campbell initiatives include:

  *Sustainability investments across Campbell’s plant network over the past
    four years that have yielded savings of more than $42.5 million.
  *A reduction in water use by more than 3 billion gallons, and energy
    savings resulting in the elimination of more than 280,000 metric tonnes of
    greenhouse gas emissions, since 2009, resulting in ongoing annual savings
    of more than $2.5 million.
  *The construction of a 60 acre, 10 mega-watt solar field at Campbell’s
    largest manufacturing site where 24,000 sun-tracking panels generate 15
    percent of the electricity to operate the plant, and a partnership to
    create a biogas power plant at the same site to generate renewable
    electricity from waste generated from product production.
  *The redesign of plastic product packaging that saved more than 1.2 million
    pounds of plastic in fiscal 2012.
  *The distribution of more than $40 million in product donations globally
    and sales of $3.9 billion of products with improved nutrient profiles.
  *The start of a 10 year,$10 millionCampbell Healthy Communities program
    to reduce the rate of childhood obesity and hunger, and the donation of
    more than 23,000 volunteer hours in the U.S. and Canada to support local
    Campbell communities.

Campbell’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategies are intended to
make positive impacts in four key areas: Our Consumers, Our Planet, Our
Employees and Our Community. To learn more
