Malton-based food manufacturer The Tofoo Co has increased its turnover by 200 per cent this year since 2017.

The Tofoo Co turned over £4.8m in 2018, and is now forecast for £7.5m this year.

Tofoo is currently the best-selling tofu in Britain. Its Naked Tofoo has become the third best-selling line in the entire meat-free category, despite Quorn Cocktail Sausages and Cauldron Falafel outselling it.

The brand, run by husband and wife team David Knibbs and Lydia Smith, started as a small, family-run business in 2016 and has since grown to 58 employees with products now sold in supermarkets including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Tesco.
