Bookbinder Specialties, a PA Preferred Company, will be showcasing a new, gluten-free, all natural New England Clam Chowder for Food Service applications, as well as its line of gourmet, ready-to-serve soups at the upcoming Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City.

“We’re a small company focused on providing the ultimate in quality and convenience for our customers,” said Colin O’Neil, Bookbinder’s New Business Manager. “We recognize there is a growing need for great tasting, healthy foods that can be easily prepared. Furthermore, Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are increasing and many people need a range of healthy and great tasting alternatives.”
Bookbinder Specialties will be showcasing two food service products, their brand-new, all-natural and gluten-free New England Clam Chowder and their legendary Snapper (turtle) Soup. Their award winning line of all natural, gluten free, ready-to-serve vegetable soups, in 15 oz glass jars will also be on display.
The first four flavors in the gourmet line, which were introduced in 2010, were awarded a gold medal in the 2011-2012 Gourmet Products Awards. Dozens of food judges, including VIPs, celebrity chefs, professional consultants and specialty retail store owners, selected the Bookbinder soup line as the best new gourmet product in the Soup, Stews and Beans category. The four original flavors included Butternut Squash and Mushroom Soup, Zesty Tomato Soup, Brandywine Mushroom Soup, and Sweet Burgundy Onion Soup. The awards revealed the growing interest in gourmet taste, healthy ingredients, green packaging, and supporting charitable causes. Since then, the gourmet soup line has expanded with four new unique flavors including Cuban Black Bean Soup, Irish Potato Leek, Tuscan Minestrone, and Sicilian Tomato-Zucchini Bisque.
The Media, Pennsylvania-based Bookbinder Specialties Company, sell soups and seasonings based on favorite recipes from the Old Original Bookbinder’s restaurant, established in 1865 in Philadelphia’s historic Old City.
