I do not usually think about the people or intentions behind the food I buy. It's great to be reminded of the companies, people, and mission statements that are centered around the quality of food put into the products, and focused on healthy eating and healthy environmental practices.

The idea of producing farmer's market quality food for a mass audience is wonderful.

I always had a hard time finding decent prepared/packaged soups. Once I made my own sous at home, I realized what was missing--the thought and care that home-cooks put into their food that is lacking in mass production (not to name anyone but I am sure everyone who ate canned soup as a kid knows. . . ). I have found that the smaller companies and organic producers tend to have better products. I trust them more, too. It is refreshing to read Henry's soup philosophy and know that other people have similar opinions to mine when it comes to food. Food should not only taste good, but also nourishing, nurturing, sustainable, and ethical.

Im very into soup and organic is the only way to go for me. Whenever I make a soup I start from scratch stock and all so I know exactly how much salt us going in. Fig and co soup keep me very happy with the organic low sodium option.

I really like that they have thought about the whole package. They seem to encompass all parts of their philosophy in the soups.

Henry believes the same thing I do - fresh ingredients, layering flavors and slow cooking. Your soups are the next best thing to my own! Thank you!

It's so hard to find good low sodium soups - I also like that they're both kosher and organic!

I hadn't heard of Fig Food yet. Seeing his holistic consideration of all that goes into his soups, and the healthy ingredients he chooses, makes me eager to try them. Thanks for sharing.

I am excited to read about a new product I have yet to try. I will buy some of your soup for my husband this week as he has a bad tooth ache. Great to hear organic is important as it is to me as well.

I like the idea of naming the soups after the region they were inspired by. Great tasting also:)

I love Henry's philosophy of why he went organic...so responsible I believe. I love soups this time of year. Have been making my own. I have not had the chance to try his soups because I don't believe they are sold in my area. Would love to try them though!

Fig Soups are great! Reminds me of when I used to make homemade soups with my Grandmother with vegatables from her garden.

Healthy and Hearty Soup is a great philosophy in their products. Soups are supposed to be welcoming and wholesome, and they are the best when they use healthy and hearty ingredients. A nonconventional but good form of soups is to incorporate low sodium, and I like how Fig Food soups ties that into their soup as well.

After re-making the recipe for Mulligatawny soup after requesting it from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, I definitely learned that a lot of work can go into one pot of soup! It takes a long time to make but it's soooo good after all the hard work is over!

I know I put a lot of thought into what's in the soups I eat; it's nice to know what someone's think about that when they make it. I haven't tried these soups yet, but I see a couple I can eat and I'm always look for soups with healthy ingredients. I'll take a look next time I'm in the store.
