RICHMOND — Nature’s Path, a North American organic breakfast and snack food company announces its portfolio of brands is expanding with a majority acquisition of Anita’s Organic Mill.

Anita’s Organic Mill is a miller and manufacturer of organic flours, offering an extensive selection of organic baking products. The acquisition of Anita’s Organic Mill furthers Nature’s Path’s vision to try and transform the health of people through its organic food.

“We have been a customer of Anita’s Organic Mill since 2015 and have been using their flour in some of our top-selling products, like our Heritage Flakes and Flax Plus cereals” says Arjan Stephens, General Manager of Nature’s Path. “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.”

Anita’s Organic Mill purportedly sources top-quality organic grain from farmers across Canada, which is then stone-milled onsite at its facility in Chilliwack, BC.

“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 family of brands including Love Crunch, EnviroKidz and Que Pasa.

“For 35 years, Nature’s Path has been a trailblazer in the world of organic food,” says Taylor Gemmel, Co-Owner and President of Anita’s Organic Mill. “And even though it has grown to be a global success story, Nature’s Path has never deviated from its mission: to always leave the earth better than they found it. We are confident our new partnership will help take Anita’s to the next level, while staying true to our roots.”
