The whole is always greater than the sum of its parts!! Soup is a great analogy to life, and what better way to showcase a personal philosophy than through their creation. I can totally relate!!

I love soup, any soup, and I can eat everyday. Organic soup is the way to go! I like Henry’s soup philosophy "connecting to other people" through soup. Nice!

My mom and I made our own soup and I think it turned out better because the vegetables were from our garden and they were organic. I think organic food is important especially if it's better for the environment and people.

I LOVE Fig Food soups! As soon as I saw them at Whole Foods, I purchased them - it's nice to find a company that makes low sodium soups that are truly low sodium. Not only are they healthy, they are delicious! I was immediately hooked on all of the flavors, so I looked up the company and fell in love with their philosophy. More companies should aim to be like this one - it's nice to know I can rely on Fig Food Company when I need a healthy, delicious meal quickly.

What a great idea to name the soups after the region that inspired them. I like the philosophy of uniting the world. I hope for their continuied success.+

I am always happy to purchase products made by small companies who use sustainable ingredients purchased from local farmers. Fig Food Co. has done just that. The result is always a wholesome product that not only tastes great , but is nutritious as well.

I hadn't, but given how delicious - yet healthy - these are, it shouldn't be surprising how much consideration Henry gave in creating his products.

I never heard of Fig Food Co., before, but now I will look for their soups. I love the comment about the farmers. I remember perusing the local Farmer's Market and watching different vendors work with food. One market in particular stood out... the one which placed heads of Boston lettuce 'just so' in the display. She cradled the lettuce in such a way that said, "I care about this lettuce. I care about its growth, its harvest, its display and its destination, and I want the buyer to appreciate all that went into growing this as well." Based on that one observation, they are my go to market. I am so happy that you appreciate the farmer as well as construct soups in such a way to highlight ingredients and regions. I can't wait to taste your soup! Thank you for what you do.

I never heard of this brand of soup and always cautious about about buying prepared foods because of the preservatives and high sodium amounts. I like that there is a hint of salt. I will have to try the various flavors.

I agree with Henry's philosophy, and I think that it is one we can adopt as we cook for our own families and as we make choices about what to buy. I'm looking forward to trying these soups!

I love Henry's philosophy of making connections and exploring cultures other than our own through food.

I love any company that has the idea of leaving the world a better place than we found it. I have not tried these products but am inspired to. Surprising because I am very familiar with Natural foods companies, though many are being bought by companies such as Kraft, I still seek to support smaller privately owned companies. thank you for your thoughtfulness.

I love their philosophy..you can sense that it is really made with love...reminds me so much of the time families in olden days spend hours in the kitchen cooking up the best dishes they can...most, if not all, of their ingredients coming their own gardens/yards.

When I think of comfort food, soup is at the top of my list now that I've taken on the challenge of healthy eating. Salt is my favorite thing and having only a minimum amount of it in these products got my attention as salt/sodium is the main reason I don't buy prepared soups. The product looks great and knowing the story behind it makes it all the more attractive.

What can I say. I love figs!! The nutritional value alone is worth exploring all the delicious things you can make with figs. They can be cooked or eaten raw, used in recipies to enhance nutrition and give them a new twist. It wasnt until I was older that I realized why my mom always had figs as a staple in the house. She knew the healthy benefits figs have for children. I went on to give them to my own children and now my grandchildren enjoy them as well. Try them, your like them!
