Pacific® Natural Foods is launching two gluten-free and high fiber offerings to its line of 32 oz. aseptic creamy soups. They are: All-Natural Spicy Black Bean and All-Natural Tuscan White Bean.

The new Spicy Black Bean and Tuscan White Bean products meet a growing demand for ethnic soup flavors.

The Suggested Retail Price range is: $2.89-$3.49.

Kevin Tisdale, Marketing Director at Pacific Natural Foods, said it is important for the natural foods category leader to remain innovative even in challenging economic times.

“While this past year proved to be a challenge for many industries, that Natural Foods Channel was still able to produce double digit dollar growth last year,” he said. “Our products offer a cheaper alternative to take-out or restaurant meals. In these rough economic times, natural shoppers will be looking for quality and good tasting ready-to-eat food choices.”

Pacific Natural Foods has four of the top 10 selling aseptic soups in the natural channel. A consumer focus on prevention and health appears to be part of the driving factor behind this growth. For instance, 69 percent of Americans are incorporating foods into a preventative lifestyle while 27 percent are using certain foods to help manage health conditions.*
