Ep. 39 - The OG of the Plant-Based Meat Movement: Seth Tibbott’s Tofurky Story

Business for Good Podcast

Today, everyone knows what plant-based meat is and chances are they’ve at least tried it. In many ways, those people have Seth Tibbott to thank. Seth, who in 1980 founded Turtle Island Foods (maker of the iconic Tofurky brand) and served as its CEO for more than three decades, is now releasing his autobiography: In Search of the Wild Tofurky: How a Business Misfit Pioneered Plant-Based Foods Before They Were Cool. Rest assured that if you’re interested in entrepreneurialism to save the world, this is the perfect book to read while sheltering in place during a global pandemic. In the book, Seth tells the tale of how ill-prepared he, as a hippie-turned-entrepreneur, was to run a business when he started out. In fact, the company remained unprofitable for more than 15 years until finally turning out new products that helped to pave the way for the explosion of plant-based meat popularity we’re experiencing today. So take a moment while social distancing and listen to Seth’s inspirational story of repeated (and repeated) business failures, followed by enormous success, both financial and social. After listening to his tale here, you’ll surely want to order his new book! Discussed in this episode Books: Diet for a Small Planet, Shoe Dog, Eating Animals, and Stephen Gaskin’s works Philip Wollen speech on animals Wild Wild Country on Netflix The Guardian on Eddie the pitbull’s foster-to-adoption story Paul Shapiro’s column in Scientific American about pandemics and raising animals for food

Founder of Tofurky, Seth Tibbott

Awesome Vegans with Elysabeth Alfano

From 1980-1995 Seth Tibbott made tempeh and lived in a tree house. (Yes.) Without much 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 as he is one of the key foundational bricks upon which the current plant-based movement is built.     Seth dishes with correspondent Elysabeth Alfano 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!   Seth's book, In Search for the Wild Tofurky, How a Business Misfit Pioneered Plant-based Foods Before They Were Cool  is out on Amazon early April.
