Nature’s Path, North America’s largest organic breakfast and snack food company has announced a majority acquisition of Anita’s Organic Mill.
Anita’s Organic Mill is one of Canada’s most respected millers and manufacturers of organic flours, offering an extensive selection of organic baking products.
Nature’s Path has been using ingredients supplied by Anita’s Organic Mill since 2015, including flour used in top-selling products, like our Heritage Flakes and Flax Plus cereals. “Throughout our relationship, we have been continuously impressed by the quality of Anita’s flour as well as the company’s passionate commitment to always being organic,” says Arjan Stephens, general manager of Nature’s Path.
Established in 1997, Anita’s sources top-quality organic grain from farmers across Canada, which is then stone-milled onsite at its facility in Chilliwack, BC. Anita’s location also houses a retail and bulk packaging facility, as well as an on-site bakery that serves as a test kitchen for education and development.
“There are so many synergies between Anita’s and Nature’s Path,” says Jayda Smith, co-owner and general manager of Anita’s Organic Mill. “Just like Nature’s Path, we have dedicated ourselves to always being organic and non-GMO. We also share a commitment to sustainability, by making products that are good for both people and the planet. We could not be more excited about this partnership, and the future growth it represents for Anita’s.”
Anita’s Organic Mill will retain its own distinct branding and join the Nature’s Path brand portfolio, which includes Love Crunch, EnviroKidz and Que Pasa.
