Campbell Soup Co. announced Wednesday it signed a definitive agreement for the sale of Garden Fresh Gourmet to an affiliate of Fountain of Health USA, a maker of hummus, dips, variety packs, prepared salads, pâtés and frozen desserts.
Salsa maker Garden Fresh Gourmet is part of the Campbell Fresh division, which also includes Bolthouse Farms.
The Camden-based canned soup company recently announced it was selling an Everett, Wash. refrigerated soup plant as part of its plan to divest certain businesses, along with its Campbell International businesses, to narrow its focus and decrease debt.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The sale is expected to close in Campbell’s fiscal 2019 third quarter, which ends April 28.
