Quinoa Corporation, via our Ancient Harvest brand, is a super-nutrition natural food company. Our mission is to return clean nutrition to American diets by replacing shallow grains—those with little nutritional value— with Ancient Greats—nutritionally dense, plant based ingredients that have been consumed for millennia. The current protein-centric and plant-based food trends present almost unlimited opportunity.
We have a well-established category leading brand with a strong market position in blue chip retailers. With our recently launched POW! Protein Pasta sub brand and our new microwavable heat-and-eat quinoas, we continue our tradition of improving the nutritional profile of traditional categories without sacrificing great taste – all while offering convenience for today’s busy consumers.
Ancient Harvest is owned by Encore Consumer Capital (http://encoreconsumercapital.com), a leading consumer products-focused private equity firm with a successful track record of building, growing, and creating outstanding value with the companies it owns.
