Hamdi Ulukaya knows what it’s like to work hard and lead with heart. Growing up in a dairy-farming family in a small village in Turkey, he founded Chobani to make good food accessible to the masses. Today, it is one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.
In addition to being a pioneer for the natural food movement, Ulukaya is committed to serving those in need, both in local communities and around the world. Under his leadership, Chobani has been named on Fortune’s Change the World list of companies. Not only did he institute a company-wide profit-sharing program at Chobani, but he also founded the Tent Partnership for Refugees, which helps improve the lives of refugees worldwide.
Ulukaya also signed a Giving Pledge, which commits most of his personal wealth to the cause.
