Turtle Island Foods, best known as the maker of Tofurky, will be expanding its operation in the coming months with a new 33,000-square-foot, eco-friendly plant in Hood River, Ore. The new facility will be solar-powered and high-efficiency, and will more than double the current size of the companys staff. In regards to the development, Jaime Athos, vice president of operations, told The Oregonian, Our brand is really getting out there I don't think people thought of their food choices as an environmental decision, but thats changing. The company also estimates that its sales will have grown by 25 percent this year. More than 4,000 grocery stores in North America carry Turtle Islands meat-alternative products.
