Louisville Vegan Jerky Company was started in my home kitchen back in 2012. Our delicious, proprietary technique was actually a stroke of luck. Having spent some time in Oahu as a child, I was craving manapua— a steamed bun filled with Cantonese style barbeque that loosely translates to "delicious pork thing." Using my mom’s old recipe, I substituted baked soy protein for the “pork things,” and popped my vegan version 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!” The barbequed soy protein was overdone, super chewy, and absolutely delicious. Tofu agreed.
I abandoned my Hawaiian food project and headed straight to the local bar where I passed around bags of my newly discovered jerky to a full patio of hip Louisville beer drinkers. Within minutes, everyone was as excited as I was. They devoured the fortuitous first batch and asked for more. Where could they buy it? What was it called? And the best part…none of them even knew it was vegan.
Today, Louisville Vegan Jerky is sold in stores all over America, but we still make each bag the same old way— in small batches, by hand, and with freshly sourced Kentucky ingredients. It’s a difference you can taste, and a cruelty-free, American-made product that we’re proud to call our own. One bite and you’ll agree, fake has never tasted so real. So grab a beer and join us, there’s plenty to go around.
