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!
