MinnTofu is a local Minnesota startup with a singular focus on producing wholesome and environmentally sustainable plant based foods, with locally farmed soybeans. MinnTofu was started by Yan Small, a licensed food safety instructor from St. Paul who currently teaches classes to food handlers and managers since 2011.
Yan was also a District Sales Manager at Sysco Asian Foods for the Midwest states and understands how critical having fresh products available to customers sustains the food industry.
The lack of freshly made tofu inspired Yan to fill the void for local consumers who want fresh Tofu in their diet. Yan as Asian American woman is passionate about the health benefits of a plant based foods. In 2018 Yan teamed up with Rafik Moore to make her dream of providing plant based foods a reality to share with others who are passionate about a healthy diet and lifestyle.
