Garden Fresh Gourmet, Ferndale, Mich., launched a new line of fresh refrigerated soups, crafted with recognizable ingredients like garden vegetables, herbs, white meat chicken, beans and grains.

"Americans eat more than 10 billion bowls of soup each year, and the fresh refrigerated soup category is growing rapidly as consumers seek products that taste great, but have fewer, high-quality ingredients," says Todd Putman, general manager, C-Fresh CPG. "Our new Garden Fresh Gourmet soups mark the first category expansion for the brand since acquisition, and as we built this new line of soups, we were careful to adhere to the simple recipe instilled by the founders—gather the best ingredients, combine them in the perfect way and sell them at a reasonable price."

Varieties include Chicken Noodle with Kale, Chicken Tortilla with Roasted Chilies, Broccoli Cheddar with Parmesan and Tomato with Parmesan, and are sold at grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $5.99 for a 24-ounce container.
