To help with a goal of trying more plant-based meals in 2021, there’s Ithaca Soy.
As the name implies, Ithaca Soy is based in Ithaca and has been a popular member of the community for more than 25 years. Adam Potenza is the current owner who took over the business in 2015. Adam’s father Tony Potenza runs Potenza Organics farm which supplies the organic soybeans used to make Ithaca Soy’s products. And all of these products are made from soy grown in Tompkins, Seneca, and Schuyler counties within about 20 miles of Ithaca Soy’s production facilities.
The products Ithaca Soy offers include three styles of handcrafted tofu—soft, firm, and extra firm—and tofu that is already baked, marinated, and ready to eat called Tofu-Kan.
You can find Ithaca Soy at more than 10 different area stores, including Wegmans, P&C Fresh, and the GreenStar Food CoOp.
