The company, popular for its Goldfish crackers and namesake canned soups, forecast fiscal 2021 sales to fall between 3.5% to 2.5%.

Campbell also missed second-quarter revenue estimates, hurt by declines at its foodservices segment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Net sales rose 5.4% to $2.28 billion in the second quarter, but missed estimates of $2.30 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Net earnings attributable to the company were $245 million, or 80 cents per share, in the second quarter ended Jan. 31, compared with $1.21 billion, or $3.97 per share, a year earlier.
