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.
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.
