Thank you for wanting to make the world a better place through food and people healthy and happy. I love soups and especially organic without the MSG. All natural and fresh is for me!

Sounds like they're worth trying out! We rarely buy any commercial soups because most are just loaded with sodium and most are pretty ordinary. These ingredients sound yummy and I definitely like the lightly salted aspect.

Amazing! I love it that your company is committed to feeding people real food. It is unbelievable how many Americans are so unaware of the food they put in their bodies. I think it is interesting how our society cares more about the labels on the clothes we wear than the labels on the foods we consume. We are so unaware of the health issues, and even how our appearance can be affected by what we eat. I attribute all this to our media and to the fact that up to not long ago nobody really cared about nutrition. I admire you for getting into the food business because the "Big Guys" are though competition, but I am sure that with your philosophy your company will go far! Thank you for putting a wonderfully healthy soup in the market!

I love feeding my family organic whenever I can. And eating soup in the winter time is so comforting. Can't wait to try these soups!

We're big fans of Fig Food soups. It's nice when the stuff that's good for you actually tastes good, too. And Joel's relationship to farmers is really exemplary. We always try to make sure we have some of the Yucatan Black Bean on hand, for when our schedules get out of hand and we need to heat up a quick meal. (They're good to take to work, too.)

I chose to weatch this video because I love the product. Now after watching the video my appreciation of their products have broadened even further. A customer was buying one of their soups after I watched the video and I couldn't help but explain all the things I'd learned. She was thrilled to hear just how connected the company is to the local farmers who grow their ingrediants.

These soups sound really great and healthy. As just learning that my 7yr old son has multiple kinds of allergies and intolerances our whole household eating lifestyle will be changing. With just starting to research about different food options for our new family adventure it's been very nice to find out about companies like this one who work very hard at bringing us so many different options that will work with the food options that we do still have. And even though our family will be eating differently due to our one little member it's going to be healthier for all of us but most importantly it will make him healthier and feeling better. Thank you Fig for giving us the different options we need to have our lifestyle change!

I wonder if Fig does meat-based soups? I'd love it if they had some with grass-fed beef or pastured chicken, or maybe some seafood type soup.

It is so important to improve the environment around us. I also like knowing that there is a positive relationship between a company and the farmers the company buys from.

I love this! I make soup all the time in this same way...whatever I have on hand plus some fresh herbs or veggies from the garden or farmers market. Its great to see a company doing the same thing. I love the origination of their name too. Since I am an avid soup maker myself, I don't often have to think about what goes into the soups I buy, because I look for soups that are made as I would make them.

I think Henry's soup philosophy is admirable and inspirational :)

I have not yet tried these soups but now am really excited to go get some...especially now that the weather is getting cooler. I love the owners' philosophy and focus on healthy, organic veggies, conscientious sourcing, and simple, flavorful recipes. This is exactly what I am trying to focus on in my own life as well. Now I really am craving a good hot bowl of soup!

As a mother of 9 with young children in the home as well as frequent visiting grandchildren I am always on the quest of good, nutritious, "clean food" to feed my family. With health problems of my own, alergies in some of the children and a husband with heart issues I make it a priority to search and research what is good and what to avoid. Bottom line...I feel a sense of trust in what "Fig Food Co." is doing for the public because it is the same thing that I am trying to do for my family.Thank you "Fig Food Co.!"

I bought Fig Foods soups for the first time last winter. The varites I have tried are just as delicious as the soup looks in the video! I appreciate that Joel Henry has taken the time to develop recipies that are tasty but also organic, local and healthy. I would rather pay more for products from small companies that I know I can trust. I am glad Whole Foods supports Fig Food Company!

I like Henry's soup philosophy. And lightly salted soup is a big plus. Got to pick some up next time!

I've seen the brand advertised in Vegetarian Times (I think) and am glad to see that Whole Foods supports them. I have them at the top of my list now to try. If I'm not going to make my own soup, from my own hydroponic garden, I want to know that I'm using a product from a company that cares as much about what I eat as I do. I can't wait to try them.

Thought provoking, and shows one of the important aspects of caring for yourself and those around you is ensuring healthful, sustainable meals.

"What's the right choice?" I love that...I wish more people and businesses mindfully asked that question as they go throughout their days. Celebrating the Farmer is exactly what he does so well and what organic food is all about...healthy and sustainable for the people and the planet!

Fresh local food that is also organic is part of our commitment to health and well being. It's vital for our growing children and the future of the planet.
