Tofurky is one of the largest producers of vegan plant-based proteins in the U.S. It produces more than 40 delicious vegan products, including a large line of deli slices, sausages, burgers, grounds, chickÕn, pizzas, pockets, tempeh and (of course) the Tofurky holiday roast. Still privately held, the organization is lead by Jaime Athos, CEO, who continues to champion Founder Seth TibbottÕs commitment to environmental sustainability and animal welfare. Tofurky hopes to get every bacon-chomping, barbecue-loving eater out there to see the wisdom of a plant-based diet. Vegetarian and plant-based diets have all kinds of health benefits (including significant reductions in chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.) Health benefits aside, plant-based lifestyles offer a profound opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment and animal welfare. Consuming one pound of plant-based protein (vs. one pound of animal protein) can save 25 pounds of green house gas emissions (about the same as driving 27 miles) and 1,500 gallons of water! If you ask the folks at Tofurky, the food you want to eat, the food you should eat and the food you do, should all be the same food.
