Campbell Soup third-quarter sales jump 16%

June 5 (Reuters) - U.S. food company Campbell Soup Co reported a 16% rise in quarterly sales, boosted by higher demand for its snack brands, including Pepperidge Farm.

Net earnings attributable to the company was $84 million, or 28 cents per share, in the third quarter ended April 28, compared to a loss of $393 million, or $1.31 per share, a year earlier when the company recorded an impairment charge related to its fresh segment.

Net sales from continuing operation climbed 16% to $2.18 billion. (Reporting by Soundarya J in Bengaluru; Editing by Shinjini Ganguli)
