Kevin Fortun, the founder of the former Stockpot Soups, announces the launch of Fortun’s Finishing Touch Soups, a new collection of gourmet ready-to-serve soups for consumers and food service industries.
The product line consists of 12 varieties, each prepared with the highest quality of ingredients without the use of any preservatives, MSG or trans-fat. Fortun says he designed the line to give restaurant operators and consumers more options in today’s value engineered products by using real ingredients in his specially crafted soups and sauces, while offering convenience and consistency.
“I’m incredibly thrilled to be back in the soup game,” says Fortun. “In my 30 years of experience in the industry, these are by far the best soups I’ve made. I’ve taken all of the guess work out of recipe development and prep time, allowing consumers to simply reheat and enjoy a delicious, steaming hot bowl of soup anytime they’d like.”
Select Finishing Touch Soups are available in a number of grocery stores nationwide, where they are served in hot kettles in the deli department and also prepackaged for ready-to-serve convenience. The complete 12-soup collection, including Roasted Tomato Bisque; Cheddar & Broccoli; Smoked Salmon Chowder; Beef Chili with Beans with American-style Kobe beef; Lentil and Sweet Sausage with fresh spinach and fennel; Azteca Chicken and Rice; Portuguese Sausage and Bean; and Classic Vegetable Beef and Barley are available to food service industries and delis through Fortun’s Kettle Program.
Varieties available in retail packs include the award-winning Ultimate 3 Clam Chowder; New England Clam Chowder; Lobster Bisque; and Seafood Gumbo, available in a 12-ounce container that serves one to two people, with a suggested retail price of $4.49.
