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. As pioneers of the organic movement we believe 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.
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.
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 Stephens’ organic legacy sprouted more than 50 years ago with just $7, a $1,500 loan and a dream. As the heart and soul of Nature’s Path, Ratana Stephens hopes to inspire future leaders to be socially conscious and powered by values – not just financials.
We grow and purchase only certified USDA Organic and Canada Organic ingredients. Our commitment to organic has kept over 70,500 tons of chemical fertilizers and over 1,000 tons of pesticides out of the soil between 2013-2016.
