Blount Fine Foods, Fall River, Mass., expanded its line of Blount-brand premium organic soups.
“As the popularity of prepared foods has exploded at retail, we have seen the call for organics to be part of the solution grow from a murmur to a rumble to a roar,” says Bob Sewall, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “For the last two years, our chefs have been working with restaurant chefs to refine our true-to-nature, delicious handcrafted organic recipes, improving our sourcing and collaboration with certified-organic farmers and testing and studying consumer attitudes, tastes and desires as they relate to premium organic soups.”
New varieties to the Blount Organics line includes:
Coconut Lentil (gluten-free, vegetarian) – A robust, protein-rich vegetarian lentil soup with a mild, sweet coconut curry broth.
Broccoli Cheddar(gluten-free) –Made with generous pieces of broccoli, creamy sharp cheddar cheese and a touch of spice.
In addition to the two new varieties, the rest of the line underwent recipe improvements and a complete redesign to highlight product features.
All soups come in 16-ounce microwavable cups with Blount’s exclusive Cool Grip Rim that makes picking up a cup of hot soup easy. The line is available nationwide.
