After a giant buyback scheme was uncovered, vegan mayo company Hampton Creek is being investigated by the SEC

The scandals keep pouring in for the small vegan company that’s always making headlines.

Vegan mayo company Hampton Creek keeps making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Securities and Exchange Commission for a massive buyback scheme that made the company seem more successful than it actually was.

After a report was released by Bloomberg with dozens of firsthand accounts from former employees, the federal government is investigating to determine whether CEO Josh Tetrick failed to properly recognize the internal revenue. The SEC has sway over this case because of the money raised from outside investors.

“It doesn’t matter if the security is a private or public one; the SEC can bring an action against both,” Jay Gould, a former SEC attorney and now partner at Winston & Strawn, told Bloomberg. Gould was speaking generally and is not involved in the Hampton Creek matter.

Hampton Creek representatives said at the time of the iniquity that the self-purchases, which go back as far as 2014, were mostly for “quality assurance purposes.” Tetrick has confirmed with media that the self-purchases account for less than 0.12 percent of total revenue.

The SEC will determine whether Hampton Creek handled its finances legally or if something more dubious was going on.


Unilever Withdraws Lawsuit Against Just Mayo's Eggless Mayonnaise

Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo will not have to defend its eggless mayonnaise in court after Unilever, the parent company of best-selling Hellman’s mayonnaise, has dropped a lawsuit against the San Francisco-based vegan start-up company.

Unilever filed the lawsuit less than six weeks ago, claiming Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo was falsely advertising its vegan sandwich spread as mayonnaise because it uses yellow pea protein instead of egg, which doesn’t make it mayonnaise, the multinational company claimed. Unilever’s claim hinged on a decades-old FDA definition of mayonnaise that described mayonnaise as containing eggs. After withdrawing its case, Unilever said in a statement that it would be addressing its concerns over Hampton Creek’s labeling with industry groups and 𠇊ppropriate regulatory authorities.”

“My instinct all along was that Unilever would step back and ask if this was the kind of company they wanted to be, and to their credit, they said ‘no,’ and that’s a pretty awesome thing,” Josh Tetrick, founder and chief executive of Hampton Creek told the Los Angeles Times.

The lawsuit put three-year-old Hampton Creek into the spotlight, “It’s been incredibly powerful to tell our story to millions of people,” Tetrick told the Times.

Hampton Creek got off the ground with generous funding from Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Li Ka-shing, Asia’s richest tycoon. And the company just raised $90 million, bringing its total backing to $120 million. The news of the new capital came on the same day that Unilever announced it would drop its lawsuit against Hampton Creek.
