Locally-Inspired Soups by Happy Planet
Happy Planet, the Vancouver-based producer of fresh soups and juices, is proud to announce the launch of four new locally-inspired fresh soups based on recipes Canadians love. The new fresh soups feature vegetables from popular Canadian growing regions. I’m happy to see that two British Columbia regions made it into their new flavours: Fraser Valley Mushroom and Mascarpone and Chilliwack Broccoli and Cheddar.
Founded by Gregor Robertson (yes, THE Gregor Robertson, mayor of Vancouver) and his friend Randal Ius, their business started in 1994 when they started making natural juices and smoothies to give city folks a taste of the countryside.
The addition of these new fresh soups is a continuation of Happy Planet’s quest to nourish people with food that is fresh, all natural and delicious; creating recipes that evoke homegrown and homemade flavours. All Happy Planet fresh soups are made with premium, all-natural, organic ingredients and do not contain any preservatives nor artificial flavours.
In addition to these locally-inspired soup flavours, Happy Planet also has a line of globally-inspired fresh soups: Mediterranean Minestrone, Somerset Garden Pea, Tuscan Tomato, Moroccan Chickpea, Indian Split Pea, Thai Coconut, Louisiana Sweetcorn and Red Pepper and Berkeley Butternut Squash.
Happy Planet products are available at your local groccery store, including Safeway, Whole Foods, Choices and Nester’s and retail for $5.99.
