Blount Fine Foods, Fall River, Mass., added a line of 16-ounce organic soups, which will be sold at retail under the Blount brand. In addition to single 16-ounce cups, Blount Fine Foods OrganicsBlount introduced 4-cup bulk packs for club stores.

“The enthusiasm and excitement among our customers for the Blount Organics line is very rewarding and validates the potential of the Blount brand,” says Bob Sewall, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Organic products are no longer just a niche trend—‘organics’ have made it to the mainstream, and are a rapidly expanding consideration for consumers, especially those who demand quality.”

The new lineup includes:

Organic Vegetable Chili.Features a robust medley of beans and generous cuts of vegetables simmered in a vegetable stock and seasoned with zesty chili spices.

Minestrone Soup. Made with savory vegetable stock, beans, pasta and a medley of vegetables.

Tomato Bisque.This gluten-free favorite is made with ripe tomatoes and a creamy combination of milk, butter and spices.

Lentil & Chick Pea Soup.Features lentils, chickpeas and tomatoes simmered in an herbed stock with select vegetables.

“While developing each product in the Blount Organics line, we paid close attention to using wholesome ingredients to keep our ingredient labels clean, sourcing locally whenever possible, employing small batch cooking to ensure layered flavors and cooling each batch quickly—all of which equals simply the best quality period,” adds Sewall.

The new Blount Organics line, which boasts a 50-day shelf life from the date of manufacture, will ship refrigerated in cases of six, 16-ounce cups.
