I have been making a lot of soup lately with produce from my crop share. I appreciate the effort, thought, and care that Fig Food has put in to their soups! It is very important to me!

I have been enjoying Fig soups. I use them as a base and add fresh chopped veggies. A healthy delicious one pot meal anytime!

The most important thing I look for in soup is low sodium, especially when I purchase a soup rather than make it myself. I believe that all soups should be low sodium, and the consumer can season it as he or she sees fit.

I agree with Henry's soup philosophy and am glad to know there are companies that put such thought and consideration into not only the products they make but the impact they have on the environment and health of their consumers.

Organic is always best for any food philosophy, but I particularly love his salt philosophy, I hate when soup is very salty, I like to add my own!

I'm onboard with their soup philosophy and can't wait to try their soup! Most ready-to-eat soup is so salty, so I'm excited to give this a try!

My friend's mother was amazing at making soup! She would just place any left over meat or veggies into a pot with orgnaic chicken broth and spices and BAM! She had amazing soup! I don't know how she did it, but always was comforting and delicious! Amazing!

I love soup, and always like to use some seasonal ingredients in my soup. I think they make soup more tasty and also remind us of the nature around us, make us appreciate what we have. A good cup of soup can really warm you up inside and out.

I haven't ever thought about what goes into the soups that I buy. Although we don't buy very often. My family and I are always looking for new products to try and we will definitely be trying his soups. Love to hear the story behind the product and that the produce use is all organic and better for us and the environment.

We as americans forget that "fast" cheap food has a price. I love eating food that enables me to feel good both physically and spiritually. If we all had Henry's view on food, family and the enviroment we would promote a dignity of planet never seen before. I am proud to put my money in Henry's pocket. Thanks Fig Food Co.

I saw these soups yesterday at our local Whole Foods store. After seeing this video, I'll definitely buy some on our next visit. I like the "Fig Food Filosophy". As for soups that I make myself, I love just about any lentil soup, minestrone, or meatless soups of any kind....

I have recently changed my family's eating to a more clean diet. I love supporting local growers. Knowing what goes into our food is so important. With cooler weather coming I love soups and looking for natural, low sodium choices.

"...if I have healthier people in an environment that’s declining, that didn’t sit well." I like that he put it that way. It seems these are the type of soups I would try to make in my own kitchen with the best ingredients. I'm excited to give them a try.

Organic flavorful soups. Can't get any better than that. Soup is one thing my family eats all year round. Never mind just for dinner- we eat it when hungry for snacks.

I think it is so inspiring that businesses are looking to farmers market for produce when creating packaged foods. I hope this is the future of our food industries.

I totally agree - “Part of making the world a better place is about reconnection; connecting to the farmer, connecting to other people,” says Henry.

Henry's philosophy is great! I love his thoughts on how reconnection is the key to making the world a better place. Couldn't agree more!

"Making the world a better place" should be everyone's philosophy! Just think of how wonderful the world would be!
