Founder of Tofurky, Seth Tibbott

Awesome Vegans Influencer Series

From 1980-1995 Seth Tibbot made tempeh and lived in a treehouse.Yes, he did! Without much prior financial success, he decided to do something about the 46 million Turkeys that are killed every year in the name of ‘gratitude’, ‘thanks’, and ‘tradition.’  Tofurky was born!

In truth, Seth is the founder of more than Tofurky. He is one of the key foundational bricks upon which the current plant-based movement was built.

Seth and I dish about his humble beginnings, the future of food, the changing landscape of agriculture, and the secret weapon of vegans! Didn’t realize you were a superhero? Seth sets you straight! Listen in!
