Their promise to you is to make delicious cruelty-free food products with taste and texture similar to their animal-based counterparts.
Chicago Vegan Foods started in the winter of 2002 in Ryan Howard's FDA-approved basement. During this period, it was a weekend hobby for Ryan and co-founder Dan Ziegler. It wasn't until 2004 with the launch of Temptation Vegan Ice Cream that the business really took off. Temptation was simply the best-tasting non-dairy ice cream on the market, and, in their humble opinion, it continues to be the best to this day. Growth was fast and Ryan's basement was small. They moved into their current facility in 2005 and have never stopped growing. With the launch of Teese Vegan Cheese in 2008 and Dandies Vegan Marshmallows in 2009, Chicago Vegan Foods continues to make some of the most innovative and best-tasting vegan products on the market. And that's not just them tooting their own horn; they've received some awards and recognition along the way.

Dedicated Production Facility
Chicago Vegan Foods manufactures all of their own products in their own facility using an entirely vegan staff. Most food companies contract others to produce products for them, making it very difficult to completely eliminate the possibility of cross contamination. Dairy products, animal products, tree nuts, and peanuts never even enter their facility, giving their vegan and allergy-sensitive customers peace of mind
All energy used in their facility is offset with green energy credits
80% of their waste is recycled
When possible, they always buy locally made and produced ingredients, equipment, and supplies
All ingredients are all natural, not processed with chemicals, and locally produced when possible
They operate in their own independent manufacturing facility, giving them ultimate control over what ingredients come into contact with their products. They can say with certainty and conviction that there will never be dairy, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, or peanuts in their plant.
