Description

If you've ever eaten Veja-Links(R), FriChik(R), or Vegetarian Burger(R), you may have wondered just how the Worthington Foods company got started in the business of making vegetarian alternatives to meat. If so, this is the book for you.Allan Buller was there for a very long time--from 1945 through 1999--an amazing fifty-five-year run. He held every corporate office from secretary to chairman of the board and company president. Even while spending the lion's share of his working life at Worthington Foods, he still managed to take a day off to play golf with Jack Nicklaus and Bob Hope.Not so much a chronological history of the company as it is an anecdotal account, this book is a fascinating read from cover to cover. You'll learn just how the title of the book came about, who liked to sunbathe in the nude, and how starch can explode and catch fire.Read how the company started out as Special Foods making the iconic Choplets(R), and what role that former US President Warren G. Harding's nephews played in the formation of the company. Follow the ups and downs of the company through the relationship with Miles Laboratories and Kellogg's, the buy-back, expansions, product trial and error, and his eventual retirement. If you're a lifelong "fan" of Worthington Foods, you'll see names of familiar products no longer made, and learn why they were discontinued.Worthington products have been a huge part of Adventist life for more than seventy-five years. This memoir from one who was there will be a treasured addition to the library of anyone interested in the Adventist lifestyle and culture.
