Westsoy started out as a small company, Westbrae Natural Foods, when a pair of idealistic students opened a coffeehouse in Berkeley. One of the foods they offered was imported soymilk from Japan.

Westsoy was acquired in 1997 by the Hain Celestial Group, a multi-million dollar publicly traded company that owns many natural and organic food brands. The Hain Celestial Group also owns SoyDream, another soymilk brand.

They refused to participate and their sourcing information could not be verified. If you enjoy Westsoy products, we would encourage you to contact the company and ask them to participate in the Cornucopia research study and scorecard.
