Founded in 2014 by wellness expert and author, Alison Velazquez, Skinny Souping offers a line of fresh, preservative free and gluten free soups which can be consumed hot or chilled. Leveraging the intrinsic health benefits of fresh vegetables, the hydration from water and antioxidants from a variety of spices, Skinny Souping offers unique soup blends that are not only delicious but also functional. Naturally low in sugar, high in fiber and antioxidant rich, they are both convenient and nourishing. The vegan line of soups and slow simmered bone broths are made with as many locally sourced and responsibly farmed ingredients as possible, making them both good for you and the planet.Skinny Souping currently packages functional soups as a detox program or soup cleanse, sold direct to consumers through their website, and will launch the retail line of health-driven soups into Chicagoland Whole Foods Markets at the end of the year.

Alison holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a culinary degree from Kendall College. Her goal is to establish her company first in midwest retail markets, and eventually as the premier fresh soup company.
