Mitchells Soup Co

More Than Just A Food Company

Mitchell's Soup Company is a family operated business located in Cowichan Valley B.C and St. Thomas O.N.
We specialize in making delicious recipes that don't just nourish the body, but the mind and soul, too.

We take pride knowing that all our recipes are created using the highest-quality ingredients and are triple tested in our homes, before they're packaged for yours.

Part of what makes us different is that everything is hand made in small batches to ensure all our recipes, from our delicious dessert, dahl and rice dishes, to our tastes just like homemade soups and chili's, are perfect each time.

Not only has this allowed us to be involved with the production or our recipes each step of the way, it has given us the privilege of being able to do so with our families.
Coincidentally both our families have four children who love to be involved, from helping us sell our products at the farmers markets to helping in the shop.
We couldn't be happier knowing our business does not just help us pay the bills but gives us the opportunity to spend valuable time with them.

Where It All Began

In a nutshell, it all started with my Mom. Around Y2K, she started stocking up on dried beans and legumes, just in case something happened. When nothing did, she had a substantial quantity of these ingredients on hand. She decided to package them in tubes and sell them at the farmers market a as dried soup mixes. And, voila—the soup business was born!

When she decided to move on to other projects, she asked if I wanted to take over. She made the offer just as I was coming off of a sabbatical with my family, so the timing couldn’t have been any better. I accepted since this would provide an excellent opportunity to do something as a family while teaching the importance of a strong work ethic and money management skills to my children.

I fell in love with the idea of making something with my hands, taking it to a market where you meet the people that are going to buy it, and selling something that will help them feed their family a healthy and delicious meal that my family had a part in making.

Ontario Expansion

In 2017 we decided to grow our operations while keeping the focus on family, quality, and artisan value by partnering with the Faris family in St.Thomas O.N. The Faris family started making soup for our customers who live in Ontario while sourcing local ingredients wherever possible.

What We’re All About

Over the years, we’ve worked hard to create time-honored recipes with our unique twist, a brand, and a way of life that share a synergy. In doing so, when you buy something from us, you’re also buying a piece of what we believe in, too—dinner isn’t just about it eating, it’s about sharing a meal, stories and a smile with the people you love.

And that’s exactly what all of us at Mitchell’s Soup Co. care about the most—creating a genuine and memorable food experience with modern flair for our customers each time they make one of our recipes.
