This year alone, we have added new accounts such as Shaw's, BI-LO, Winn Dixie, Acme, Price Chopper, Key Foods, Gristedes, Heinen's and others because customers around the country are demanding our premium soups. We are on track to meet or exceed our internal sales projections for the balance of the year and to have a great soup season," said Jamieson Karson, Chief Executive Officer."
