"Once a refugee gets a job, that’s the moment they stop being a refugee."
HAMDI ULUKAYA, FOUNDER OF TENT
Raised in eastern Turkey, Hamdi Ulukaya founded Chobani in 2005 with the mission of making better food more accessible and providing good food for all, while also improving local communities. Selling the first cup of yogurt in 2007, Chobani became the No. 1-selling Greek Yogurt brand in the U.S. less than five years later. A devoted philanthropist, Ulukaya signed the Giving Pledge and founded the Tent Partnership for Refugees in 2016 to help end the global refugee crisis. Ulukaya serves on the boards of La Colombe Torrefaction LLC, Pathfinder Village, and the Tent Partnership for Refugees.
