Staff Accountant

Ancient Harvest

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.
