Chicken Soup for the Soul to launch comfort food line
Chicken Soup for the Soul — the well-known book publisher and leader in life improvement, inspiration and wellness — will launch a national line of nutritious, quality comfort foods that will be available in supermarkets and food retailers in early 2013.
Inspired by real people and their stories about food, family and feelings, Chicken Soup for the Soul Foods will fittingly begin its line with soups and expand in 2013 and 2014 to include more than 100 comfort food products in various categories. The food items in the line will be designed with the health-conscious consumer in mind and will also offer convenient ways to shorten meal prep time.
“Meal times play such an important role in living a well-balanced life that our readers and fans have asked us for years to launch a food line. By creating a line of delicious comfort foods that warm the heart and nourish the soul, we are providing yet another way that we can always be there to care for and support our community,” said Chicken Soup for the Soul CEO Bill Rouhana.
To launch the new line, Chicken Soup for the Soul will release seven soups, including the iconic Chicken Noodle Soup, Chicken and Rice, Creamy Tomato and more. The initial soups will be available in 15 oz and 24 oz reusable and recyclable traditional glass mason jars.
Chicken Soup for the Soul Foods is a partnership of Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing and Daymon Worldwide, a full-service global retail and branding and sourcing company that works directly with suppliers and retailers.
