Nature’s Path acquires a majority stake in Anita’s Organic Mill
Anita’s Organic Mill is one of Canada’s most respected millers and manufacturers of organic whole grain flours.
The acquisition of Anita’s Organic Mill furthers Nature’s Path’s vision to transform the health of people and the planet 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.”
Established in 1997, Anita’s Organic Mill sources organic grain from farmers across Canada, which is then stone-milled onsite at its facility in Chilliwack, B.C. Anita’s location also houses a retail and bulk packaging facility, as well as an onsite 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 family of brands including Love Crunch, EnviroKidz and Que Pasa.
