“We anticipate that visual and voice technology will change the way our brands connect with our consumers,” said Greg Shewchuk, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer for Campbell Soup Company. “The Campbell’s Kitchen skill brings new utility to the connected kitchen by encouraging users to engage, discover and cook meal solutions that work for their busy schedules.”

  • Send the recipe to themselves via email

Campbell was one of the first food companies to implement Alexa voice technology in 2015. Since the launch, the Campbell’s Kitchen skill has connected with consumers, receiving over 50,000 unique sign-ups and suggesting more than 174,000 recipes to its users.
