I had never heard of Fig Food Co. but after seeing this video, I can't wait to try it! It's always nice to know how and what the ingredients really are in our food, especially soup, since there are so many components. The low sodium is a HUGE plus for me since my parents are watching their sodium intake.

I've tried the Tuscan White Bean soup and it is very tasty - and rather filling, as well. When I saw it on the shelf, I thought "what a strange name for a soup", a love figs, but not as soup, but am very glad I tried it.

What a great soup! I just don't have time to get together all of those ingredients and make soup from scratch, so it's good to know someone has my back!

I think Henry's philosophy on feeding people with sustainably-grown/harvested, fresh ingredients is the way to go: it's the future of food. If more people felt and produced their products this way, we'd all benefit!

How wonderful to see food going straight from the market to the kitchen without any extra processing! Fall & winter are such a great time for soup - I'm looking forward to trying some new varieties from Fig Food Co.

Anyone who takes the time to get to know the farmers in their farmers market is okay by me. Your soups are amazing and your purpose is even better! Keep it going!! If everyone could live more simply and "Be the change they want to see", the world would be a better place. You guys set a great example.

Our family shares very similar philosphies. We are regulars at our farmers market and love the satisfaction of making our food from fresh and local ingredients. Bravo Fig Food!

We love white beans in our family. Nutritious & yummy w/cornbread, onions -- eat it southern w/fried okra or fried green tomatoes, even better.

Fig Foods is making a soup I can love and also be proud to buy. I put that much thought into ingredients I use so I can appreciate Henry's thoughtful process.

I love the regional/naming idea. Who says that just wines have a sense of "place"?? Wonderful story. Thank you for sharing.

Henry's soup philosophy is applicable to the whole gamut of eating, drinking, and living a healthy lifestyle. When our meals celebrate the richness of earth's wholesome plants and spices, it brings a smile to the eaters and well-being to our souls.

Soup is one of my favorite things to eat, and when I have the time, to make. Knowing and caring what goes into a soup is key to having it taste good so what Fig Food Co. is doing is awesome.
