Ingredients

The freshest ingredients make for the best tasting products. So we source as much as we can—from our garbanzo beans to many of our spices—using time-tested relationships with local farmers across the American southwest and beyond. Our partners share our values around honest ingredients, clean water, and even agricultural job creation.

Process

Our competitors blast their products with high heat or pump them full of preservatives, which results in bland taste and texture, along with decreased nutritional value. At HOPE, we only use cold pressure with state-of-the-art HPP technology to retain fresh, peak flavor, wonderful texture, and important nutrition without artificial preservatives.

Flavor

We think of flavor a bit like we do life. There are moments that call for classic and comfortable. And then there are moments that should be completely new and exciting. We love to cross the boundaries of cultural styles and mix them into unique mash-ups our fans can’t get enough of. For example, we’ll mix maple syrup with chipotle peppers, or introduce chickpeas to Thai food. We are health-focused foodies, and the cuisine of the world inspires us and keeps us infinitely curious.

Passion

We’re on a collective mission to introduce healthy, high quality and wonderfully flavorful food to the world. We truly believe that the simple act of sharing good food can nourish the body as well as the soul. That’s why we make some of the freshest, most flavorful and nutritious hummus, spreads and dips you’ve ever tasted! You will experience the heart of HOPE in every bite of every product we make!

Our Story

Hope is a beautiful thing.

We’re not talking about our hummus, although we think pretty highly of that as well. We’re talking about the powerful concept of hope—that optimistic sense of expectation and heartfelt desire.

We named our company Hope Foods because of our belief in the power of better food, and the hope our customers have for products they can trust, from a company they can believe in.

The seeds of our company were sown over weekend get-togethers with friends where things always seemed to revolve around food—trying new restaurants, cooking together, or just kicking back on someone’s patio over an amazing meal.

Along the way, HOPE’s Spicy Avocado Hummus was crafted after countless recipe tweaks, taste tests with friends, and a heck of a lot of great times over great food.

Finally, with the first carefully made batches in hand, we set out for the Boulder County Farmers’ Market. It was a huge hit. After each market we would head off, exhausted but full of that wonderful thing called hope, to make up another batch for our next farmer’s market. HOPE’s Original Recipe soon followed. And soon thereafter, our first foray into specialty grocery stores.

Today, we’re found across the country, in grocery and specialty stores of all shapes and sizes, with a wide selection of hummus, spreads and guacamole that feature fresh ingredients, bold flavors and the same level of passion we’ve been pouring into our products since day one. And we have a tremendous following of loyal fans to whom we will be forever grateful.

We still make our products in small batches in the heart of Colorado a few miles from that original farmer’s market. Our hope today? That you’ll find some near you, get together with a few friends and spread good things.
