I like that soups are made just like if you made them at home.

I can personally state that a better diet will make a hughe difference in health in a short while. Now I not only watch what I eat but the quality of the food as well.

Fig Food Soup is one brand of organic natural soup that I must try! Sounds like something I would whip up in my own kitchen! Organic and natural ingredients with lots of love!

Few foods are as satisfying and comforting as a good soup. Few cooking experiences are as satisfying as those that require you know where the food is coming from and that you've thought about what you're putting together. This seems like an ideal combination.

I have recently begun to choose organic fruits and vegetables after learning how many different pesticides can be on their conventional counterparts. Organic and plant-based soups? Yes, please! This is right up my alley, Fig Foods!

The perfect solution during the week when I can't cook. It has the quality of my own soup, but ready when I get home.

i like the fact that they use less salt, always trying to keep track of my family's sodium intake.

I have not yet tried it, but certainly will now! That's why I love WF's website - I am always learning about new products to try :-) And of course, they are always great!

We loved Joel's delicious soups which we first had when we were visiting our daughter and her family in NYC.

For someone who has to carefully monitor sodium intake, my favorite thing about Fig Food is that their soups are truly low sodium.

Love the concept of have foods dense with plant ingredients. I'm trying to live a clean eating lifestyle which encourages lots of real food and none of that commercial artificial chemical gunk!!!

I hadn't thought of all the hard work that does into making soups. These soups sound delicious and I have a new appreciation of them. I can't wait to try some :)

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.

His philosophy should be commended and celebrated.

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 have thought about all the preservitives in can soup and totally agree soup should have only ingredents everyone knows.

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.
