Original Soupman soups are available on grocers shelf in the soup aisle, next to Campbell's and Progresso, in Tetra Pak cartons which are environmentally friendly, shelf stable and designed to keep the product tasting great without preservatives.

Soupman Chief Executive Officer Jamieson Karson said: "Shrimp Bisque is a delicious soup made with loads of shrimp and is hearty and tasteful, but not too heavy. Our customers at our Original Soupman store on 55th street and 8th Avenue in NYC have raved about the unique flavor profile of our Shrimp Bisque for years and we are now making it available to grocery shoppers all across America.

“We compete head-to-head withCampbell's and Progresso in the soup aisles of the best grocers in the country, and now with the introduction of Shrimp Bisque which joins our other premium soups like Lobster Bisque, Crab Corn Chowder, Chicken Gumbo and Jambalaya, we are gaining traction and awareness with repeat purchases and new customers.

“This year alone, we have added new accounts such as Shaw's, BI-LO, Winn Dixie, Acme, Price Chopper, Key Foods, Gristedes, Heinen's and others because customers around the country are demanding our premium soups. We are on track to meet or exceed our internal sales projections for the balance of the year and to have a great soup season.”
