April 27, 2009

Join us in welcoming Bob's Red Mill as our most recent Business Member, as well as our first Gold Sponsor for VegFest 2009.

Bob's has a serious commitment to healthy eating and lifestyles, which led to their early support of NW VEG when we brought T. Colin Campbell (author of The China Study) and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. (author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease) to Portland for VegFest 2007. Although their products are internationally distributed, Bob's is a locally-based company, headquartered in Milwaukie. A visit to their mill store is a treat, with row after row of bulk dispensers (as well as packages) of beans, flours, whole grains and much more than you'll ever find on your neighborhood grocery's shelves.

Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods produces more than 400 products, including a full line of certified gluten-free products and an extensive line of certified organic products. With a wide variety of whole-grain products - from flours and hot cereals to baking mixes and grains - Bob's Red Mill has "whole-grain foods for every meal of the day." Bob's Red Mill is the nation's leader in stone milling and is dedicated to producing natural foods in the natural way. They stone grind all common and many uncommon grains into flours and meals on over one-hundred-year-old mills. With all of the sophisticated knowledge of recent times, no machinery has yet been developed that grinds grains into flour as well as these slow-turning, flint-hard quartz millstones of the kind used by millers since ancient times.
