Pitango has released its latest comfort food, Free Range Chicken and Vegetable Soup, to help Australians weather the cold and flu season. 

Pitango general manager Mary Boulton says: “Pitango Free Range chicken and Vegetable Soup is packed full of nutrients and when served hot can help with congestion and is soothing for a sore throat.”

Pitango aims to match the authentic flavour and quality of lovingly home-cooked soup. “Our chefs in the Pitango Kitchen hand cut the vegetables, make the broth from scratch, and cook our soup in small batches,” Boulton says.

“They then seal it in small pouches to lock in the homemade flavour and goodness. When you get it home it will taste just like it was cooked in your own kitchen.”

Each pack contains two serves of your daily vegetables, she says.  

The Pitango Free Range Chicken and Vegetable Soup comes in 500g chilled pouches and is guten free, 99 per cent fat free, and has no added preservatives. The soup is now available in major supermarkets nationally and can be found in the chilled section for an RRP $6.00.
