In 1970, Follow Your Heart started as four young guys working in our original market and cafe in Canoga Park, CA. They dreamed that one day our company would provide healthy, nutritious, and delicious food to our community and beyond – all with the intention of making the world a better place. Just over 50 years later, we are humbled and proud to see that dream realized. Follow Your Heart is now a well-recognized, global, plant-based foods company with products like Vegenaise and our dairy-free cheeses.⁠

We are excited to share our new look which truly reflects who we are as a brand as well as our rich, 50-year heritage. Along with our beautiful new packaging, we’re excited to announce that we’re joining the Danone family of plant-based brands. We have found a partner that shares our mission, vision, and values, who embodies the very best in social and environmental responsibility, and who will help accelerate and expand our efforts to broaden the availability of plant-based foods. Meaning you, our valued community will have greater access to more of the delicious Follow Your Heart products you love. We will continue to produce our products with the same strict standards in our solar-powered facility in Southern California. We are excited for you to join us in this celebration as we continue to move forward toward the fulfillment of our dreams and our mission. ⁠
