History

CHANGING THE WORLD,
ONE SIP (OR SPOONFUL) AT A TIME.

Since the beginning, Silk has been about more than good taste and good nutrition. We're also out to make the world a better place. Not just for those who use our products, but for everyone.

WALKING OUR TALK

We’ve always supported folks who share our values and want to change the world for the better. As Silk has grown, so has our definition of neighborhood, expanding to touch the communities in which we do business and the environment we all share.

From our commitment to resource preservation to our passion for the non-GMO movement, we recognize that every business decision we make has significant impact on people and the planet.

PROGRESS: FROM SCRAPPY STARTUP TO TRAILBLAZER

Turn back the calendar several decades to when our founder conceived the notion of starting a tofu company. We recognized the benefits of a plant-based diet early on. We experimented with making all kinds of foods from plants: meatball sandwiches, sausage, burgers, pizza, salad dressings, drinks, pies, muffins, frozen desserts, nut butters and more, and enthusiastic customers formed lines out the door waiting to snap up our delicious creations.

Over time, we expanded from a tiny retail deli to a good-sized manufacturing facility. Our big break came in 1978 when a supermarket chain signed on to carry our goods. Before long, Silk soymilk was displayed right next to dairy milk.

Since then, our portfolio has expanded to include our popular almondmilks, coconutmilks, cashewmilks, and a host of other delicious options—from blends to creamers to non-dairy yogurt alternatives. And through it all we’ve stayed true to our values—using ingredients that are sourced responsibly to bring you food that’s dairy-free and delicious.

Stay tuned—we’re always dreaming up something new.

SILK BELIEVES IN THE GOODNESS
(AND GOOD-FOR-YOU-NESS) OF PLANT-BASED FOODS

Our soymilk, almondmilk, coconutmilk, cashewmilk and other delicious products are simple, wholesome and nourishing, just as nature intended.
