Follow Your Heart®: From our Market & Restaurant to your Table. In 1970, four friends got together and created the Follow Your Heart® Market and Restaurant in Canoga Park, California. From these small quarters, we served vegetarian soups, sandwiches, and salads to a growing vegetarian community. Eventually, the ever-increasing need for new vegetarian products led us to put our energy and ingenuity into creating our own line of all natural foods.
While Follow Your Heart® is still alive and well, today we produce our branded products, such as VEGENAISE® in our state-of-the-art, SOLAR-POWERED manufacturing facility, called EARTH ISLAND®, located just a few miles north of the original Follow Your Heart® café. In keeping with our mission and values, every effort was made to incorporate the maximum conservation of resources into the design of Earth Island®, including skylights, recycled carpeting, tank-less hot water, energy efficient lighting systems, and environmentally-friendly refrigeration. We are committed to demonstrating leadership in the ethical, social, and environmental responsibilities of operating a business.
We are and always have been driven by passion and by a love of what we do. We hope you will find that reflected in the quality of the products we produce, and that you will enjoy them as much as we enjoy providing them.
