Pacific Natural Foods’ Soup Starters line expands
TUALATIN, Ore. — Pacific Natural Foods has boosted its Soup Starters collection.
The lineup now includes Thai Tom Yum, a spicy and sour soup made with such authentic spices as galangal and lemongrass; and Tortilla, which leads with a tomato base, seasoned with green peppers, onions, a hint of lime and traditional spices including chili powder, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper and coriander.
"People want to recreate the restaurant experience at home, but few have hard-to-find ingredients like lemongrass or galangal on hand, much less the time to let a broth simmer for hours," Pacific Natural Foods VP marketing Kevin Tisdale said. "With Pacific’s Soup Starters, we’ve done the hard work for you. Warm up the base, add in your fresh ingredients and dinner is on the table in less than 30 minutes."
Tortilla and Tom Yum Soup Starters hit store shelves this summer, with a suggested retail price of $3.49 to $3.69 for a 32-fl.-oz. carton.
