Located just across the border in Richmond, B.C., Nature’s Path is a family-owned and -operated company that produces an impressive array of natural and organic whole grain foods. Here’s their back story: In 1971 Arran Stephens founded Canada’s first health food store. The business, then called Lifestream, soon expanded into milling and baking their own whole grain muesli, granola, nut butters, and energy bars. In 1985, Arran and his partner Ratana, began a new venture, Nature’s Path. Nature’s Path first product was Organic Manna Bread, a unleavened sprouted loaf rich in protein, fiber, and flavor. They soon moved on to cereals, baking mixes, energy bars, waffles, and much more.

Look for a wide variety of Nature’s Path products (many gluten free!) at the Co-op, including Breakfast Cereals, Granola, Instant Oatmeal, Baking Mixes, Frozen Waffles, Crispy Rice Bars, Granola Bars, Manna Bread, and Toaster Pastries. Nature’s Path was one of the leading sponsors of Washington’s I-522, the 2013 attempt to mandate the labeling of genetically modified foods.

Nature’s Path strongly supports food labeling transparency, and voluntarily has its products third-party certified organic and Non-GMO Project verified. Nature’s Path was one of the founding partners of the Non-GMO Project, and was the first to label products with the Non-GMO Project Verified seal in Canada. Nature’s Path was one of the leading supporters of California’s Proposition 37 and Washington’s I-522, the two unsuccessful state initiatives to mandate GMO labeling on food labels. Keep up the good work, Nature’s Path! We’re proud to have your products at the Co-op!
