We’re part of the Campbell Soup Company global network and our brands are sold in 120 countries around the world. You might be familiar with Campbell’s Condensed soups, Goldfish, Godiva Chocolatier, Pepperidge Farm, Liebig, Oxo, Erasco, Batchelors, V8 and Prego.
In Asia Pacific, we have an outstanding portfolio of locally manufactured and marketed brands such as Arnott’s Tim Tam, cheezels, V8, Kettle, Nyam Nyam, Arnott’s Shapes, French Fries, Good Time, Campbell’s Country Ladle, Velish, Kimball sauces, Cheong Chan and Arnott’s Tiny Teddy.
Today, Campbell Arnott's Asia Pacific employs more than 8,500 people across the Asia Pacific region and exports to more than 40 countries around the world. Our sales exceed A$1.3 billion and 20 percent of our products are new to market in the last three years.
Our organisation comprises four business units – Arnott’s Biscuits, Campbell’s, Arnott’s Snackfoods and Asia – with 75 percent of current sales generated by Australian activities and 25 percent by Asia.
And, our goal is for Campbell Arnott’s to be the most admired food company in Asia Pacific by 2008.
This means continuing to grow our Australian businesses at double digit rates, achieving a critical mass level of sales in each of our Asian businesses and developing viable business operations in China, Thailand and Korea. The latest addition to our family is our Guangzhou office in Guangdong Province, PRC.
At least 25 percent of our total business will be generated by sales of new products which are launched within a three year rolling period. We’ll also pursue strategic M&A activities in at least two categories and in at least two Asian countries.
But we can’t do all this without great people. That’s why we’re building an extraordinary talented team.
