In 1976, Norman Holland and Andrew Schecter envisioned a business to serve as a vehicle for positive social change. With the help of $7,000 in loan money from friends, Northern Soy (also known as SoyBoy) started making organic tofu. From the conviction that happy workers produce higher quality foods, Northern Soy has since strived to create a workplace where people can enjoy their work and have their needs fulfilled. Northern Soy, based in upstate NY, sources their product locally whenever available. All of their products are all-natural, certified organic, kosher, GMO-free, and nut-free.
