Jed Lazar and Shauna Lambert make organic soup in Portland, Oregon then deliver it via bicycle to patrons within their downtown service area. Their company, SoupCycle, uses locally sourced produce to make hearty soup-based meals that are sold via subscription through their website.
Environmental sustainability and socially responsible practices are at the heart of the food service's subscription soup deliveries. Bicycle delivery has saved over 3,000 car miles and put more than $33,000 into the local farm economy.
Implications - All SoupCycle soups are made from produce that is both locally grown and organic. With over 50 delicious soups on the menu, the company offers a variety of tastes based on veggies that are in season with local farmers.
