Just curious because there are a ton of canned soups on the market, albeit, not very healthy ones.

Did the Need/Relative Value perception of their healthy soup (along with the "animal cruelty" angle) outweigh the potential ease of someone copying their ingredients?

Go start a soup company and your second post will be "goddamn this shit is harder than I thought I didn't know you have to do X, Y and Z just to be allowed to sell food!"

The idea is that you should remember that the harder it is to do something, the less competition there is usually. It's not a rule that says you have to open an aerospace manufacturing company or be doomed.

How long do you think it would take you to invent your own soup and get it on a shelf at Target or Whole Foods?

1 day? 1 week? 1 month? Or 1 year?

If you're honest, you'll have your answer. If you lie to yourself, you won't.
