Organic is important--especially when we make food to nourish our bodies and to heal from an illness.

Love Henry's philosophy! Aside from all the health and community benefits of organic plant-based ingredients, I appreciate his focus on local products and his support of local farmers -- love the idea of creating a pot of soup based on what's freshest at the market that day. Watching the video motivated me to get to the farmers market Saturday, stroll and grab what catches my eye, then get back to my kitchen and let my instincts and imagination run wild. Can't wait to try Fig Food Co. soups.

Joel Henry's voice is very comforting.......it makes me want to try his soups. I make much of my own food, but it's great to have something on the shelf (fresh seasonal ingredients, low sodium) that echo what we also do in our own kitchen. Thank you.

I've definitely considered the thought behind soup as a maker of soup. I appreciate his care in choosing ingredients and using foods that are good and in season rather than being stuck on an ingredient that may or may not be able to be found in top quality. I also found the origin of the name Fig Food interesting.

Love Henry's soup philosophy, doing the right thing. Working with real farmers, using real ingredients, and using nothing artificial- wish all companies would think like that. Makes me want to support this company and try the soup..

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.

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 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.
