It is sure an interesting concept. The connection between the food and the farmer is one of the most importent.

I never really thought about the attention that companies put into what goes into my soup- I think that in more recent times, companies are becoming conscious of this and that's a great thing!

It is extremely refreshing to see someone take an honest stand for what they believe in and to share it with others.

I make most of my own soups from fresh, organic produce and whole grain pastas or grains. However, it sure is nice to know high-quality fresh and wholesome pre-made soups exist.

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.

I haven't purchase much soup from the market, as I always make it fresh from my organic garden, but to know the quality put into this soup is a great thing and definitely worth a try! Thank you

I agree with and also follows Joels comment that, " at every point..what is the right choice." (paraphrased) This is so true in our everyday life it is all about choices and making the right choices...even when it comes to eating. A great way to live life too. I also like the fact that Henry Fig products only use products our grandmothers would recogize...so true (read a label)...I want to know the ingredient and pronounce it. And, try to follow this way of life too.

I love Henry's philosophy of making connections and exploring cultures other than our own through food.

I think his philosophy is a great idea. That's an amazing looking farmer's market he's at as well. I look forward to trying his products.

Fig soups are great and I love to heat them up for lunch. I also really enjoy making my own homemade soups with all organic ingredients. It makes you feel warmer, inside & out, knowing that what you decide to eat also affects the earth and supports the farmers and laborers who take the time to grow organic produce.

Organic, sustainable, AND delicious?!? That's like the trifecta of healthy eating!

Having low sodium soups give us the choice to eat healthy with great taste! Love labels with words I can pronounce!

I loved the video. It feels so good to make your soup personal. Made by someone who cares and puts joy and soul into making that which goes into my body. Everything is selected, chopped and packaged with consciousness. This is the way our world should be. Caring....personal...conscious.

I believe in only eating healthy organic foods. Reading how Henry's soups are made to be healthy, organic, low sodium and care about the environment...here I come.

Soups are the mainstay of our lives. My husband is a diabetic, has heart and kidney problems and finding wholesome food witihout harmful additives is a constant challenge to "eat the right thing." Without hesitation, the Fig soups are his faborite! And they're good for him, too!
