As of May 2014, Louisville Vegan Jerky can be purchased in nearly 50 co-op and small dry goods stores across the country. They've grown out producing the product in a community kitchen, and moved into a bigger kitchen with more ovens and space to spread out. Now they are working to improve their packaging.
The owners launched an online campaign to raise money to upgrade packaging and aim for placement in bigger stores. To find out more or to contribute, CLICK HERE.
