Upton's Naturals  Vegan-owned natural foods producer specializing in meat alternatives. When in Chicago, visit our factory cafe @uptonsbreakroom!


In 1994, a teenage vegan made his first batch of seitan from Chef Ron Pickarski's seitan box mix. A little over 10 years later, that vegan founded his own seitan company. Today, our founder Dan and Chef Ron Pickarski met in person!! 🤝 #vegfestcolorado #makingmagic #seitan

It's the @veganmos! We picked up their book NYC Vegan, which contains recipes for exactly the kind of delicious, indulgent, Seitan-y foods that we love! They'll be in our home city of Chicago in September, so look out!! 👋

We're set up at VegFest in Colorado getting ready to rep Chicago hard.

We tried to keep the piece sizes a little bigger with our new Sriracha Jackfruit because they are AMAZING breaded and fried as "wings." Try it and let us know what you think!

Two new flavors of Jackfruit heading to a store near you soon!

Have you visited our home sweet home in Chicago? Learn more about it in this throwback article from 2013: http://ow.ly/Hkxn30dmthK ✨✨ "The stockyards' legacy, if just a shadow today, still remains. And yet here is Upton's Naturals. Staackmann, Sopko, and their burgeoning staff are penning a new, bloodless page in the city's history. Their new factory, cross-continental distribution, and mustachioed mascot all seem to whisper, if not taunt: “Hog Butcher for the World no more.”"
