Louisville Vegan Jerky Company was started in my home kitchen back in 2012. Having spent some time in Oahu as a child, I was craving manapua. Using my mom’s old recipe, I substituted baked soy for the pork and popped my seasoned protein in the oven. I was busy preparing the dough and chatting with friends when the smell of chargrilled meat hit my nose. ‘Toe-y!’ I screamed at my three-legged dog, Tofu ‘I forgot to set a timer’.
