Life at Soyboy

working at SoyBoy in Rochester, NYLook at our dedicated team!
People ask us all the time why SoyBoy is such a great place to work. Some of them might talk about the benefits package or the stability of the job. We think it’s because of the people. We’re a family, and everyone on the SoyBoy team knows that they’re really cared about as people and as human beings. The average employee has been with us for 10 years, but some have been working with us for decades! We know that the people make the magic happen, so here are just a few individuals who bring SoyBoy Tofu & Tempeh to life.



Colin Klein

Also known as Dr. Tofu. Colin Klein is in charge of food safety and quality at Northern Soy, ensuring the every product meets our high standards. Colin is one of the newer members of the Northern Soy team. He first started as an intern in 2015 and transitioned to a full time position in May of 2016 after graduating with a BS in Food Science from Cornell University. Colin also serves as the lead product developer, concocting new and delicious products.

Kareen Duncan

Kareen Duncan is one of our longest-term, versatile, and valued employees. She was born in Kingston, Jamaica and came to the US in 1991. She started working at Northern Soy in 1996 and quickly became one of the stars of our packaging department. Since she’s a quick study, Kareen learned to make excellent tofu and often does stints in our production areas. More recently Kareen works in the office with customer service, purchasing and trucking logistics. You can see she is truly a jack-of-all-trades! One of Kareen’s finest moments came in 2003 when she became an American citizen. We had a party at work in her honor and she posed with this American flag cake shortly before we all devoured it. Kareen lives in Rochester with her daughters Shanice, Dyonte and Kiki.
