Nelson, BC
422 Vernon Street Nelson British Columbia V1L 1S8 CA

Kathryn Whitehead and Josh Currie have been the makers at Silverking Soya Foods since January 2019, taking over from the former owner, Jeff Mock. Silverking Soya Foods has been around for over 20 years, and Kathryn and Josh are proud to continue to bring exceptional organic, non-GMO, artisan tofu to the Kootenays.

Who are the makers at Silverking Soya Foods?

Kathryn Whitehead and Josh Currie.

Where are you located?

Nelson, BC, In the brewery building.

What do you make?

Organic, non-GMO, handcrafted tofu in a variety of flavors. Our regular tofu is also available in bulk at the Kootenay Co-op, so customers can re-use their own containers!

How would you describe your company?

At Silverking Soya Foods, our tofu is available in an array of flavors, and our boutique method and custom recipe give it a deliciously unique flavor.

This tofu is described as being smooth, sweet and delicious. We believe in the value of a quality product, and maintain a fun and happy work place, where we care for our employees. A good work environment translates into a better tofu, from us to you.

How long have you been in business?

The business has been a well loved institution in Nelson for 20+ years. We purchased Silver King Soya Foods from the founder, Jeff Mock, in January of 2019.

What motivated you to start?

Our belief in an exceptional product, mixed with the right opportunity, motivated us to purchase and expand on this business.

What are some of your greatest joys?

So many people have told us that they are extremely glad someone purchased this business and has continued to produce a quality product. We love hearing how much people love our tofu!

What are some of your greatest challenges?

Being a new business owner has been full of challenges and endless learning opportunities! Right now, we are trying to promote our product outside of the region, and expand into other areas of B.C. We have had many requests from all around the province for our product, so learning how to market ourselves and get out there has been the greatest challenge so far.

What is your vision for your company?

We would love to expand our location to one with a store front/ deli. We want to eventually get as creative as we can with this business and bring something new to this town, expand further, and create more jobs and opportunity in Nelson.

Why is local food and/or local purchasing important to you?

Not only is buying local good for the environment, but eating local means more money stays within your community. There is no better way to help boost your local economy!

If you could deliver a message directly to Co-op members/customers, what would it be?

We appreciate all the support and love that we have received in the last year. Thank you Nelson!!!
