4 Delicious, Innovative New Varieties Added to Their Soup Aisles
NEW YORK, Oct. 16, 2013 — Soupman, Inc. (Public trading symbol: SOUP) announces that shoppers who turn their carts into the soup aisles at Stop & Shop, Giant and Martin’s Stores will find something new, something revolutionary, something delicious.
Popping off the shelves in the midst of boring and flat-tasting canned soup their eyes go to The Original SoupMan’s stunning array of unique soup varieties in fresh, modern Tetra Pak cartons. It’s the packaging of today in a grocery category that otherwise looks like the 1950s.
Just in time for the chilly weather, the brand’s World Famous soups, including the signature Lobster Bisque, along with Chicken Noodle, Crab Corn Chowder and Jambalaya, can be conveniently picked up at Ahold USA supermarkets (http://www.ahold.com), including Stop & Shop (www.stopandshop.com), Giant Food Stores (www.giantfood.com) and Martin’s Food Markets (www.martinsfoods.com).
It’s all part of The Original SoupMan’s expanded national distribution program, and its plan to revolutionize the soup industry by offering consumers the opportunity to enjoy the soup that inspired the famous “Seinfeld” episode in the comfort of their own home.
All of the company’s soups feature the same famous recipes developed and perfected by Al Yeganeh, the culinary genius behind the brand, and are packaged in the innovative shelf stable Tetra Pak cartons to help maintain the taste and quality of the soup.
“We are excited to see the great success of The Original SoupMan ready-to-serve soups and the launch of their exciting new flavors,” said Michael Zacka, President and CEO, Tetra Pak, US and Canada.

As the group enters a growth phase, The Original SoupMan is thrilled to join forces with the industry giant.
