Mofu Tofu will cease production this week

Fans of Mofu tofu only have a limited time to pick up their favorite plant-based protein. Chef-owner Daniel Brewer is closing the company, effective this week.

“This is the last week we’ll be delivering,” Brewer said. “What accounts have this Friday will be it.”

In an Instagram post, Brewer said he decided to shutter the business for a number of reasons:

“I have decided to close the business because of competing demands in my personal life with a growing family and as a full-time chef and dietetic instructor in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Saint Louis University. I plan to shift my creative focus as a chef and will continue to pursue opportunities to share food with all of you.”

Brewer began Mofu as a grad school project in March 2011, and the business quickly grew to become a supplier of tofu and soy-based products to retail and restaurants across the region.
