Carbon Neutral

Our timeline

Some brands start in a garage. We started in an old converted car wash, lovingly referred to as “Tempeh Works.” We’ve come a long way since those humble beginnings, but our passion for plant-based is the same. Here’s a look at some of the milestones that got us to where we are today.


LightLife® is founded in an old, converted car wash as “Tempeh Works” and launches the very first tempeh product into the mainstream market.


Tempeh Works officially changes their name to LightLife® Foods.


LightLife® launches Smart Dogs®, now the #1 best-selling plant-based hot dog in the United States.


LightLife® publicly pledges that all products will be GMO-free, eight years before the Non-GMO Project is founded.


All LightLife® products received the stamp of approval as non-GMO through the Non-GMO Project Standard.


We turn 40! That means four decades of inspiring our customer's plates and palates.


Greenleaf Foods, SPC becomes a 100% carbon neutral company.


The new LightLife® is born! LightLife makes a new brand promise to the plant-based world to power them up, without ever weighing them down.
