Changing the World one bowl at a time

Tradition Meets Innovation

We're changing the world through food, and we're starting with soup. Our culturally authentic recipes are more craveable with more versatile applications because we work with an unparalleled network of award-winning chefs led by our founder, four-time James Beard Award winning Chef Michel Nischan, and our chef Impact Board. This group of influential culinary leaders is dedicated to creating a more equitable, just, and sustainable food system.

Our products are made with clean, plant-based ingredients, delivering from-scratch quality alternatives to meat substitutes and meat-based products. We naturally thicken our soups with masa harina and a touch of corn starch, avoiding the use of any artificial additives. This innovative approach delivers delicious food that is rich in taste yet lower in sodium, free from added sugars, and environmentally friendly. With a portion of every sale directly supporting our nonprofit partner, Wholesome Wave, your purchase directly helps us change the world through food—one bowl at a time.
