About Quaker Foods NA

In 1877, American breakfast was changed forever. Quaker Oats was the first company to register as a trademark for breakfast cereal in the United States. Original owners Henry Seymour and William Heston thought the name and symbol of “Quaker” displayed the brands “good quality and honest value.” Quaker has made incredibly delicious innovations in breakfast since its founding. In 1922, they introduced one of the first convenience products, Quaker Quick Oats. Much later, in 2001, PepsiCo acquired Quaker Oats for $13.8 billion. The acquisition was an important chapter to both companies’ history. Despite PepsiCo’s ownership of Quaker, the company continues to operate independently and hasn’t stopped creating delicious and beloved breakfast staples. Some of the company’s brands and products include Old Fashioned Oats, Quaker Instant Oatmeal Cups, Quaker Instant Grits, Life Cereal, Chewy Granola Bars, Quaker Baked Flats, Quaker Tortilla Mix, and dozens more.

Quaker Oats was founded on the deliciousness and nutrition of the oat. In 2012, Quaker Oats created the Quaker Oats Center of Excellence, “a cross functional entity focused on elevating the relevance and benefits of oats through science, agriculture, and innovation.” The company is not only committed to satisfying customers but looking out for their wellbeing. Creating healthy, innovative products with the trustworthy grain has been Quaker’s vision since its founding. The Center engages in research that shows the health benefits of the oat and how they can be better utilized in food.

Quaker Oats is a company with a simple vision: to provide great, delicious food through the power of the oat. With numerous products and a customer base in need of breakfast, Quaker continues to be successful and provide easy, healthy food to a global customer base.
