Abstract International corporations began their expansion into Russia in the 1990s and now their amount continues to increase.

That is why the problem of developing strategies of entering the Russian market – with its established structure – is urgent for international FMCG companies. The main objective of the research is to make comprehensive analysis of the Campbell Soup Company entry strategy and to define key influential factors and company aims of successful activity. Keywords: international strategies, strategic planning, entry strategies, Russian market of consumer goods
