Since 1980, we’ve been making our dream come true: lip-smacking food that makes animals, people and the planet happy.
As Tofurky grows, we continue to advocate for animal welfare and reinvest in a wide variety of environmental initiatives.
Our family company is still sure of one thing: that people, animals and the environment matter more than profit margins.
Who needs sandwich bread when focaccia exists? We pile on the flavor with layers of Tofurky Italian Deli Slices, vegan provolone, lettuce, tomato, hot pickled peppers, and hazelnut arugula pesto.
30-40% of our food grown in North America is wasted. Yep, it goes un-used, then often gets trapped in landfills. We're tackling this problem head-on.
We compost 2750 lbs. of food scrap each week, which becomes orchard soil. (It might seem like a lot, but it’s really just 1% of the food we make.) The USDA + EPA have called for a 50% reduction in all food waste by 2030. Let's get there, together.
We keep about 142,956 lbs. of food waste out of landfills each year by partnering with an industrial composter, Dirt Hugger. They accelerate the waste's natural, aerobic decay with heat, air and moisture - producing beautiful soil. In a landfill, the same food might emit 271,617 lbs. of methane - the equivalent of 7.3 MILLION miles driven.
The liquid sprayed over our food compost site is actually a bi-product of our neighbor's brewing process at Full Sail Beer.
If our products don’t meet retailer specs (dimples/blemishes) we donate them to people first, before composting.
Soil composted by Dirt Hugger, is spread over apple orchards that supply us with ingredients for our Chick'n Apple sausages.
A healthy tree produces 500 - 600 pounds of fruit per season. We have to replace the nutrients the tree removes from the soil. Returning bio diverse nutrients to the soil helps with moisture retention, tree growth and prevents erosion. Healthy trees are more immune to disease and damage from pests.
Food waste. It’s a trending conversation around the world as supermarkets provide aisles and piles of perfectly uniform produce. But what happens to all those two-legged carrots, heart-shaped eggplants and extra curvy tomatoes? Sadly, around 33% of all food produced around the world goes to waste due to perceived consumer demand for perfect produce.
