Nature’s Path Foods: Organic Granola
As pioneers of the organic movement, Nature’s Path, believes organic food and farming is the best way to care for our bodies and for the planet. We always have and always will use our voice to stand for what we believe is right – and what organic truly means.
An Organic Legacy
Nature’s Path was founded in Vancouver BC in 1985 by Arran and Ratana Stephens. The company started out, and still is today, a passionate, family-run company that makes delicious, organic breakfast and snack foods.
Words of Wisdom
The seed for Nature’s Path was planted way back in the 1930s when Arran Stephens was growing up on his family’s second-generation organic berry farm. Arran’s father taught him how to care for and nurture the soil, telling him to “always leave the earth better than you found it”. These words have been woven into the very fabric of Nature’s Path.
A Growing Movement
Over the last 30 years, Nature’s Path has grown to be North America’s largest certified organic breakfast and snack food company with a product line of over 150 cold cereals, granolas, hot oatmeal, waffles, bars, and cookies.
Pioneer, entrepreneur, artist and visionary, Arran’s organic legacy sprouted more than 50 years ago with just $7, a $1,500 loan and a dream. After opening the first vegetarian restaurant in Canada and the first organic cereal manufacturing facility, he is now leading future generations down a path of organic food and agriculture practices so we may all leave the Earth better than we found it.
As the heart and soul of Nature’s Path, Ratana hopes to inspire future leaders to be socially conscious and powered by values – not just financials. Over the course of her career, Ratana has been named one of Canada’s top ten female entrepreneurs and one of B.C.’s most influential women. She also gives the best hugs in the Nature’s Path office.
Arjan is passionate about encouraging conscious consumerism, especially with food. He believes our forks and wallets are powerful tools for change, and regenerative organic agriculture is the catalyst that will transform the world for the better. Arjan and his wife, Rimjhim, are also the proud creators of the Love Crunch family.
Jyoti’s activist upbringing transformed into her dream work, where she now ensures environmental sustainability is top-of-mind for every business decision at Nature’s Path. Under her leadership, all three of the company’s manufacturing facilities were designated Zero-Waste and she’s implemented programs to encourage a purpose-focused culture in the organization, as she believes everyone can make a difference in the world.

Does Nature's Path use only organic ingredients?
Answer: Nature’s Path, EnviroKidz, Love Crunch and Qi’a brands only use ingredients as allowed by the National Organic Standards. The standards have a few exceptions where it allows for some non organic ingredients (only up to 5%) for specific reasons. Ingredients that cannot be certified organic (for instance mined substances like those used in baking soda) Note that organic certification is only available for agriculturally produced ingredients. If an agricultural ingredient is not yet commercially available in certified organic form, it can only be used if it has been evaluated and is listed on the National List. Both categories have to be on the National List. This list is very limited and only allows products that have not yet been able to be produced in organic form and they also cannot contain any other prohibited materials such as harsh solvents or irradiation, GMOs or grown in sewage sludge etc. Nature’s Path avoids using anything even from the National list whenever possible, however some of our products have some allowed colors or flavors that are not certified organic and that are on the National list. We work with many of our suppliers to help convert conventional ingredients to organic as quickly as possible. We look forward to the day when everything is available in organic form.
About Us :
Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets. Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.
100% of Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard.
Each certification program has a different set of standards. Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products. Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.
Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues. All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program.
The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation. Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.
The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
