My daughter loves their soups. Her favorite is the Tuscan White Bean soup. I usually use the tomato soup as the base for my vegetarian chilli.

Naming them after regions was a great idea!

Fig Food soup is fabulous!! I am thrilled to find a low-sodium soup that is healthy for everyone and has the added benefit of being packaged in a carton!! Thanks Fig Food!!!

I think Joel Henry made the right decision. Organic foods are so much safer than the usual mass-produced foods and our whole world benefits. My favorite soup is tomato soup - goes with everything and reminds me of my childhood.

It is always important to buy local, fresh, and know what you are putting intoyour product.

I love the whole concept. Keeping the packaged food organic, low sodium, and sourcing from small, local farmers...minimal packaging, even the reason behind the name. I can't wait to try this product.

I never ever knew all of the thought that went into the soup. It is so nice to have people that care about putting good ingredients in our food....ingredients that are good for us and our planet. I will buy Fig Food products.

Henry is a perfect example of how all meals should be made, with care and consideration, and putting that in a 'packaged' product, so good. What a role model

I bought some of your condensed split pea soup to try. Now that I hear your philosophy I'm glad I did.

So nice to see/hear someone interested in quality and taste . Sounds like Henry is really concerned with what goes into his product. I like that.

It's impressive that he is willing to put in so much "extra" work to produce a soup that is so higher in quality than you usually find.

You can't care about the environment and not be a vegetarian. That's what i've heard, and it's true. The amount of land, water, and food to raise a tiny bit of meat would create tons (literally) of plant food. No food shortages would ever exist if the world went vegetarian. And organic is a given: putting toxic chemicals on food: it's poison, and something only the very dumb or very foolish would do (or the suicidal). They create so much terrifying disease, it should be banned the same as all other poisoning murder!!

I'll definitely try this soup. I make my own as a rule, but it's always good to have a fall-back position.

I've never tried your soup before, but after watching the video, I'm on my way to Whole Foods to buy some! Thanks for what you do for those of us who don't have time to make soup from scratch. :)

It's so important to reconnect to our roots, since in today's society we often lose the farm to table connection. Horray for Henry for setting a positive example for the rest of the food industry. I hope others will take note!

Glad I read this story today. It is good to hear about good food corps. growing in a society where there is little interest in personal and global well being. I look forward to trying this soup on my next whole foods visit.
