At Turtle Island Foods, our Tofurky® and tempeh products are created to promote the health and vitality of both the people and the ecosystems of our "island" home. For almost 30 years we have worked to create delicious, nutritious, convenient and affordable vegetarian food that make a difference in people’s lives and have a minimal impact on our environment. We are located in Hood River, Oregon, one hour east of Portland. We make our vegetarian products in small batches using only the finest organic and natural ingredients. No preservatives, MSG or other artificial ingredients are added to our products. All of our products are kosher, vegan, and made with organic soybeans and/or organic tofu. We are a family owned and operated company. Seth Tibbott, company founder and president, started making tempeh (a fermented soy product from Indonesia traditionally wrapped in banana leaves and sold in street markets) in 1977 as a hobby while living in a tent and working as a naturalist along the banks of the Nolichucky River, Tennessee. Reading Francis Moore Lappe’s 1971 classic, Diet For A Small Planet, was a revelation for him. Armed with the knowledge that it takes 16 pounds of grain and soy to produce one pound of beef and only eight ounces of soybeans to make one pound of tempeh, Seth had found his passion in the form of plant-based protein. He believed that there was a future in America for nutritious, delicious, vegetarian food.
