Welcome to Heiwa Tofu

Heiwa ("hey-wa") Tofu is located in Belfast, Maine. We make certified organic tofu and soymilk from Maine grown organic soybeans as available. Both products are handcrafted fresh every week using traditional, open kettle methods.

We get asked about the cherry blossom dotting the "i" in our logo. In Japan, cherry blossoms, or sakura, can symbolize purity and simplicity. We've adopted this as our guiding principle. Whether sourcing organic, non-GMO and sustainably grown ingredients; taking great care to ensure the production of pure and wholesome foods; or by selecting modest and minimal packaging, we've set our standards high to produce food we feel safe feeding our family.

Heiwa tofu offers a purity and freshness that can be hard to find in this modern world. Enjoy!


Heiwa Tofu manufactures high quality tofu and soymilk using organic Maine and New England grown soybeans. Our production crew is small, but central to the success of the business. Initial responsibilities involve cutting and packing tofu, a significant daily cleanup, package labeling, and record keeping. Other possible responsibilities include product development, staffing the farmer’s market table, and working at our booth during the Common Ground Fair. Challenges of the job involve demanding physical work, stringent food safety protocols, and the ability to adapt and adjust hard-fast routines to a dynamic manufacturing environment. The ability to take initiative and ownership of the position is a must. The position starts with 3 to 4 afternoon shifts per week (about 11-4pm) and another 5-10 hours per week available (somewhat flexible on the timing).

This is a year-round position.

The right candidate must:
-Have a keen interest in working in and contributing to the local food system
-Have a strong work ethic and commitment to being part of a growing, family-run business
-Be able to learn and follow stringent food safety protocol for food production, yet be able to                   quickly adapt to changes.
-Have reliable transportation to the facility (Belfast until June, then Rockport)
-Be able to lift 50 lbs
