New Gourmet Soup Line Launched By Fortun Foods


Fortun Foods announces the launch of their "The Ultimate Soup Line" featuring Chowders, Soups and Chili.

Seattle, WA (I-Newswire) December 3, 2012 - Kevin G. Fortun, founder of Stockpot Soups and Fortun Foods, has done it again with his launch of "The Ultimate Soup Line", a lineup of 8 fabulous Gourmet Soups, Chowders and Chili.

Kevin is getting back into the business in which he built the World's largest Fresh Soup Company, Stockpot Soups. The company sold to the Campbell Soup Company in 1998, in an historically unmatched acquisition deal within the food industry.

After taking several years off from the consumer product industry, Fortun gathered many members of his original Stockpot Soups team to create Fortun's Finishing Touch Finishing Sauces. International and Ethnic flavors, together with the classics. Fresh ingredients and chef-developed recipes ensure that the full- flavored Fortun's Finishing Touch Finishing Sauces maintain the high standards expected to accompany the Fortun name, while providing a time-saving solution for busy consumers and foodservice operators with their quality gourmet sauces.

Moving back into the soup business was not on Kevin Fortun's radar. Former customers had asked him to develop a quality chowder like none other. Top quality was the only way Kevin would go, he was not going to go into the commodity soup business, and "The Ultimate Soup Line" was born.

"These are the best recipes I have made in over 30 years in the business" said Kevin Fortun. As proof of that, Fortun Foods' Ultimate 3 Clam Chowder was just awarded "Best Clam Chowder" at the world famous San Clemente Seafest 2012.

No cutting corners with Kevin Fortun, a truly delectable experience. His passion still shines; he unveiled his Fresh "Ultimate Soup Line" which includes these tantalizing Gourmet Soups:
