here In 1980, Seth Tibbott founded Turtle Island Foods, aka “the Tofurky Company” on $2500 savings from his 8-year career as a teacher/naturalist. For 15 years, Seth pursued his dream while losing his shirt as one of the first tempeh producers in the United States. In 1995, against the advice of his partners, Seth introduced the first nationally marketed vegan holiday roast named “Tofurky”. Today, Seth oversees international sales to make sure that the sun never sets on the expanding Tofurky Empire, and under the sharp management of his stepson, Jaime, the independent/family-owned company has become an industry leader in plant based foods, recently opening a $10 million LEED Platinum eco Tofurky processing plant in Hood River, OR.
