After spending 10 years as an investment banker and management consultant, Minh Tsai became frustrated that he couldn’t find the delicious tofu and yuba he grew up eating in Vietnam. He decided to embark on a culinary journey to take back tofu, combining deeply traditional and pure methods with innovative production for his artisan tofu, yuba and soy milk product. After creating Hodo Foods, he launched a farmer’s market stand in Silicon Valley, eventually growing Hodo Foods to more than 4,000 retailers and restaurants nationally, from Whole Foods and Target to regional specialty markets and co-ops.

Please join us as we sit down with Minh to talk about his entrepreneurial journey through the world of food, how he is revolutionizing the tofu industry and the evolution of plant-based eating!
