  • Our brands and products

    1. Why does the V8 label state, eg 1 glass = 3 serves of vegetables? Similarly V8 Fruit & Veg?

      The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating (1998) recommends that Australian adults consume 5 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit every day. V8 juice can help you consume these servings by giving you 3 serves in a 250ml glass.

    2. Do the nutritional values on V8 represent the product before or after it’s made?

      The nutritional values are taken after the juice has been processed.

    3. Are there preservatives added to V8 juice?

      V8 juices do not contain preservatives. The juice is cooked quickly at a high temperature, then filled and sealed under sterile conditions in either the glass bottle or the combibloc carton so it is shelf stable.

    6. What Campbell’s soups are suitable for vegetarian or vegan?

      Campbell's Velish is suitable for vegetarians.

    7. I have Campbell’s Microwave Soup. I have pulled the ring pull and removed that layer, but the metal rim still remains. Will this do damage to my microwave?

      No, as long as you replace the red cap, there will be no damage to the microwave.

    8. Is there a ‘best before’ date on Campbell’s cans? What do the codes on the cans mean?

      On the bottom of the can are some letters and numbers, eg
      E71 15:03
      D 7D302

      The bottom row is the code to read. The first number stands for the month of production, eg 7 = July; the third number for the year, eg 3 = 2003.
      Campbell’s recommends you eat canned product within two years of production for the best taste and quality. Campbell’s also recommends you never buy a dented or rusty can.

    9. How long can I keep Campbell’s V8 and Real Stock in the fridge once opened? Can I freeze these products?
