Started 34 years ago by Allan and Susan Brown, the legacy has been passed on to the new owners of Noble Bean, two young restauranteurs from Nova Scotia who have owned and operated Montreal's vegan restaurant "Aux Vivres" for the last 15 years.
Aux Vivres translates into "the goods, and the source of life." They are committed to producing the finest certified organic tempeh using the techniques that have been passed on to them from their original tempeh heroes.
