Protecting resources – feeding people
On 15 August 1985 the engineer Herman Berief founded the "Tofu Kostwerk GmbH" in the Westphalian town of Diestedde. This was preceded by a three-year development phase, which ended with the construction of a system for automated tofu production from whole soy beans. On this system he produced the first, purely vegetable tofu products. Hermann Berief is among the pioneers who convince with their idea. It is the firm conviction that vegetable food products are good, and that their use is easy on the Earth's resources.
