A pioneer in the U.S tofu market, Luke Lukoskie of Island Spring Organics started crafting protein-rich tofu on Vashon Island in 1976. What started out as a small venture in a 14-square-foot shed has today turned into a full-scale operation that produces more than one million pounds of organic tofu a year.

PCC has enjoyed a relationship with Island Spring for more than 30 years; these days, you’ll find a selection of firm, extra-firm, steamed and silken options in our stores. The PCC Deli uses Island Spring’s product exclusively in its dishes.
