Soupure was a simple idea conceived during a lunch between two friends, Angela Blatteis and Vivienne Vella, when they both found themselves ordering a disappointing bowl of soup at a local restaurant. Both having had family members who suffered from cancer, they discussed the healing power of nutrient rich foods, like bone broths. The ladies lamented over the challenge it has become to get tasty, nutritious soups without cream or preservatives. They each said that they could not find any truly delicious, non-dairy, non-GMO, 100 percent good-for-you whole food based soups. Sure, some of the local markets were starting to stock what they called “fresh and healthy” soups, but upon closer inspection, these soups proved to be filled with cream, tasteless without any nutritional backbone. Both busy moms of three and hard working professionals, Angela (from the world of private equity) and Vivienne (from the world of law) were perplexed by this hole in the market. They spoke about the juice craze and its efforts to fill the hole with the popular fad of “juicing” and juice cleanses, but they both agreed they felt dissatisfied, starved, and jittery after having tried certain pressed juice cleanses. So, they set out to create Soupure- a company that is in the business of developing and delivering nutrient rich cold and hot soups, tonics and waters, and soup cleanses that are not only amazingly delicious and satisfying, but are also medically endorsed and made from organic, fiber and protein rich ingredients that are absolutely void of fillers and emulsifiers.

Our nutritional adviser’s road to nutrition began with his desire to heal himself and family members of what he believed to be food-related health issues.
