Turtle Islands Foods, the makers of Tofurky products, announced that they’re planning to build a $10 million eco-friendly processing plant.
The plant will be one of the most eco-friendly food processing facilities in the country. It will be solar powered, high efficiency, and also recycle water used in food processing to heat and cool the 33,000 square foot building. Made from 45% recycled materials, the factory will also have a charging station where members of the public can juice up their electric cars for free.
Turtle Island vegan products are blowing up. The company anticipates a 25% increase in sales over the next year as their distribution continues to expand. When the new factory is finally completed, Turtle Island foods will have to double their staff just to keep up with demand.
Congratulations to Turtle Island. Great people doing meaningful business. It seems like the companies who are already cool tend to keep getting cooler while the companies that suck keep getting suckier. Maybe Turtle Island can show the world a more responsible business model where you can save the planet and get rich at the same time.
