Campbell Soup Co and StockPot Inc officially dedicated the company’s new 220,000-square-foot Everett (WA) Culinary Campus, which will produce StockPot’s line of fresh, refrigerated soups and chili. United States Rep Rick Larson, King County Executive Ron Sims, and Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson were among officials who participated in dedicating the soup-making facility.
Everett Culinary Campus will have a workforce of about 350. At more than double the size of Woodinville WA’s operation, the Everett facility will provide production capacity required to meet demand for StockPot’s soup and chili.
In April 2005, the company reached an agreement with King County to relocate from its Woodinville location to make way for the Brightwater Treatment Plant, which was being planned to be built in Snohomish County. In August 2005, StockPot announced plans to build the Culinary Campus within South Everett’s Seaway Business Park.
