Unisoya is a Canadian tofu company owned and operated by two brothers who are organic farmers. The organic fields where the soybeans are grown are located right next to their tofu plant. Not all tofu made by Unisoya is certified organic; the non-organic soybeans are purchased from a neighboring farmer.

Unisoya is available in eastern Canada, and a wonderful example of a brand connected directly to the land and the farmers who produce the food.
