Starting out small in the tempeh biz, today Tofurky is leading the charge on animal-friendly eating through a mission of yumminess. Our family company is still sure of one thing: that people, animals and the environment matter more than profit margins.

Our story
is simple.

In 1980, after making from-scratch tempeh to share with friends and family, 30-year-old teacher/naturalist/hippie Seth Tibbott opens his own company in Forest Grove, Oregon. He expands operations to a vacant elementary school in 1983 -- and decades ahead of the tiny house trend, he builds a 300-square-foot treehouse to call home. Fast forward to 1995, Tofurky debuts the very first Holiday Roast. It strikes a cultural chord with a nation hungry for a tastier meat-free Thanksgiving. Today our growth plans include new products, but also new countries. We're so inspired by a world that is waking up to the benefits of veg cuisine.

We talk taste and walk compassion.

Tofurky is an engine for global change. If we want to change the world, we’ve got to get the whole world to see the wisdom of a plant-based diet. Not just vegans and vegetarians, but every bacon-chomping, barbecue-loving eater out there. We do this by walking straight past hearts and minds, and speaking directly to taste buds.

Still a family biz.

We don’t stress about pleasing our shareholders – because we don’t have any. Family-owned for 40 years, Tofurky has always focused on purpose over profits. Seth’s stepson Jaime Athos, CEO, is now leading us into the next millennium of animal-friendly food that’s 100% tasty.

yum for all.

Since 1980, we’ve been making our dream come true: lip-smacking food that makes animals, people and the planet happy. See why our food tastes so good.
