The soup manufacturer uses aseptic cartons with the new artisan soup line.

Progresso Soup from General Mills brings gourmet options to the table with the rollout of Progresso Artisan. The line comes in eight chef-inspired varieties that demonstrate the brand’s commitment to celebrating authentic taste and exploring new flavors. The soups feature unique spice blends, such as masala curry and coconut milk, and incorporate simple, high-quality, trending ingredients like kale, all of which are new to the Progresso ingredient repertoire. The soups have been crafted to deliver innovative flavor combinations and taste discoveries.

Varieties are: Creamy Potato with Sausage & Kale, Creamy Roasted Chicken with Bell Peppers & Parmesan, Creamy Tomato with Roasted Red Pepper, Masala Curry Butternut Squash, Pasta e Fagioli, Roasted Chicken with Black Barley, Rustic Tomato with Chicken & Dumplings, and Smoky White Bean & Winter Vegetables.

“Families are looking for more options to add to their menus that are fast, fulfilling and flavorful,” says Valerie Mastroianna, associate marketing manager. “Our soups are made with high-quality ingredients and crafted with care, offering homemade taste in a convenient way.”

The Artisan line is the first for Progresso to package in aseptic cartons, either 17.2 oz. or 17.6 oz. The soups can be found in the ambient soup aisle and have a suggested retail price of $2.99.
