WHAT: According to a recent Technomic study, one out of three consumers is purchasing soup more often at grocery stores. Artisan soup maker Kettle Cuisine is debuting its palate-pleasing Thai Style Curried Chicken Soup to its line of all natural, all gluten free, single-serving frozen soups - the first of its kind. This savory new variety features naturally raised chicken, seasoned with Madras curry and cooked in handcrafted chicken stock and coconut milk, coupled with hearty brown rice.
Available in supermarkets nationwide in late 2010/early 2011, Kettle Cuisine's Thai Style Curried Chicken Soup is the latest variety available in the company's line of heat-and-eat soups that cater to the demands of consumers looking for great tasting convenience foods with simple and recognizable real food ingredients. With gluten free, dairy free, vegan/vegetarian, and low fat options, Kettle Cuisine's line of chef-inspired soups allow health-conscious consumers and the nearly 11 million Americans living with food allergies to indulge in their favorite comfort foods.
Having evolved from a regional New England phenomenon into the nation's leading premium all natural soup brand, Kettle Cuisine features offerings whose great taste can be attributed to the company's dedication to cooking made-from-scratch soups that contain the highest quality fresh food ingredients, combined with authentic flavors and handcrafted stocks. Soup enthusiasts can indulge in traditional favorites, such as Chicken Soup with Rice Noodles, featuring chicken raised without antibiotics, and New England Clam Chowder, made with fresh, hand-shucked clams-varieties that have been unavailable to Celiac sufferers until now.
Now available in all 50 states, Kettle Cuisine soups can be found in your grocer's natural food freezer case. The line of 11 all natural, gluten free frozen soups is packed in convenient 10-ounce microwaveable bowls and sell for a suggested retail price of $3.49-3.99.
Kettle Cuisine will be sampling a variety of soups and chilis from its consumer line at its Fancy Food Show booth, including the new Thai Style Curried Chicken Soup.

WHO: Representatives from Kettle Cuisine, including Founder and President Jerry Shafir and Executive Chef Volker Frick, will be available to discuss trends in the soup industry, the importance of diverse food options to cater to dietary needs and lifestyle preferences, and the growing gluten free industry. Jerry can speak first hand about the need for great tasting, gluten free foods as his daughter Kate was diagnosed with Celiac disease at a young age. This experience forced Jerry to become intimately aware of the lack of flavorful prepared food options for Celiac sufferers-thus his creation of this soup line.
