Follow Your Heart
Follow Your Heart has been making artfully-created plant-based food substitutes for almost 50 years. From its SoCal origins to today’s international presence, it has become a leader in accessible vegan food.
The History of Follow Your Heart
Follow Your Heart got its start in 1970 as a small soup, salad and sandwich counter at the back of a natural food store in Canoga Park, California. The company quickly grew when a member of the staff perfected a recipe for vegan mayo. Customers were enthralled with the mix and the team quickly needed a new facility to produce it at a rapid clip.
Today, Follow Your Heart products are available online from Thrive Market, and in retail locations in over 25 countries. It continues to grow and look forward, while not forgetting its origins. The original seven-seat counter is still around and serving its famous Avocado, Tomato, and Sprouts sandwich, just like it did almost 50 years ago.
