Honest organic convenience products for more than 30 years
It all started in 1988 when Maria and Oskar Schramm decided in cooperation with a good friend to produce their own homemade tofu. Their love for animals and the wish to support the local organic agriculture inspired the trio to come up with a small production in their own kitchen. The little tofu production was initially only meant for themselves. However, quickly friends and family asked for the homemade tofu as well and so they decided to start a bigger production - in their garage. The first tofu burgers came to life - 100% made from scratch with passion and love. Soon, the first spring rolls followed - each single piece rolled by hand.
In order to inspire even more people to go for a plant-based diet, the distribution of the products was expanded and the company name SOTO was introduced. Until today, the products are well known and sold under this brand although, the companys' name was later changed to organic veggie food GmbH.
With the rise of more and more people’s desire for a meatless and plant-based nutrition, SOTO got the chance to grow. Soon, a new and bigger production site had to be chosen. Since 2011 the tasty SOTO specialities are produced in the picturesque village of Bad Endorf surrounded by mountains, lakes and lush green meadows. The currently 120 employees take care of the production of the organic treats day by day with passion and commitment. Today, the SOTO products are also known outside of Germany and distributed to different European countries as one thing is for sure: highest quality and pure taste come without borders.
To us, a healthy and well-balanced nutrition is really important. It goes without saying that our own products have to meet this requirement as well. For us, there is no need to use any kind of additives such as palm oil, conserving agents or artificial flavour enhancers. According to the motto: as real and as natural as possible. For this reason, SOTO products only contain real and "honest" ingredients that mother nature provides us with: vegetables, fruits, grains, pulses, seeds and nuts. Add a dash of our homemade seasoning mixtures, salt originating from our beautiful Bavarian Alps and some sunflower oil - that's it.
The stars of our products are called carrots, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, beans and chickpeas, red lentils, tofu, pumpkin or sweet potato. We create real products with real flavours. New products are only launched once they meet the taste of the most critical team members. Our aim is to enhance the vegan and vegetarian world of products with our tasty and natural products - organic convenience for pure delight.
