Vietnamese refugee Minh Tsai never expected he’d be running one of the top plant-based food companies in the country. Minh simply decided to make the delicious, organic artisan foods he grew up eating in Vietnam, but found elusive in the US. He started with one farmer’s market stand in Oakland fifteen years ago. With Minh’s innovative take on traditional production methods, Hodo products quickly became popular ingredients with chefs. Today, Hodo is found in restaurants and retail stores nationwide.
