About the guys...

Seth Tibbott - Founder of Tofurky - The world’s leading plant based meat alternative company. 

In 1980, after making tempeh from-scratch to share with friends and family, the 30-year-old teacher/naturalist/hippie Seth Tibbott opened his own company in Forest Grove, Oregon, called Turtle Island Foods. His mission was to create tasty, cruelty free plant based meat alternatives, one of which was tempeh. He expanded his operation 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. In 1995, Tofurky debuts the very first Holiday Roast. It strikes a cultural chord with a nation hungry for a tastier meat-free Thanksgiving. 2000 and beyond welcomes even more deliciousness, with the addition of deli slices and sausage and frozen items. Today their growth plans include new products, but also new countries. Inspired by a world that is waking up to the benefits of veg cuisine, Tofurky remains a family owned business.
