The Cambell’sÂ factory in Kings LynnÂ is to close, with a loss of 250 jobs.
It opened in 1950, and the cooling tower has become a landmark of Kings Lynn.Whether this will stay or go has not been decided.
The company was bought out last year by Premier foods..
Campbell’s added brands such as Oxo, Batchelors, Homepride and Fray Bentos and the famous Campbell’s soup to Premier’s portfolio which already included household names such as Crosse & Blackwell, Branston Pickle and Bird’s custard.
One of my Favorite cookery books came from Cambell’s, it has over 125 recipes all made using Cambell’s soup.
