Garden Fresh Founder Bids to Buy Company Back From Campbell Soup Co.

Jack Aronson, the founder of Garden Fresh Gourmet, is attempting to buy back the Ferndale-based business four years after selling it to Campbell Soup Co. (NYSE: CPB)

It’s not about the money for Aronson. His motivation is to keep the company in Ferndale and to preserve jobs for the roughly 450 people who work there, he said.

“While I decided a few years ago to sell Garden Fresh so that I’d be in a position to invest more into our community, the company has always remained my baby, and I worry about it,” he said.
