About the company

Growing up in Kenya, our founder, Nick, enjoyed the many benefits of a wholesome breakfast made with nutrient-packed grains like millet and sorghum. Now that he lives in New York City, he's learned that every region of the world is unique and holds the treasure of a nutritious grain or seed that has helped its population to survive and thrive. However, his busy lifestyle doesn't afford him the time he needs to make the same type of breakfast his mother used to make for him.

Thus was born UJI: our team finds the best grains that each region of the world can offer, and puts them into delicious and super-nutritious smoothies that you and your family can drink at home or on the go.

Drink UJI, and know you are getting the best nutrition from around the world.

Snack Spotlight: Curate Sweet & Tart Berry Bliss Bar




A medley of delicious berries adds an ambrosial note to a crunchy, satisfying blend of almonds, chia seeds, and quinoa, sprinkled with flax seeds. It's a little bit sweet, a little bit tart—and totally blissful.



The story behind Recipe 3
Number 3 is not only a lucky or a sacred number in many cultures. It’s also associated with creativity, a carefree attitude, and generosity. See the ingredients that make this bar sweet and tart.








About the Company
What Drives Us
We believe snacks should be wonderfully surprising. That’s why we take a culinary approach to create snacks that use simple, nutrient-dense ingredients. Then we combine these ingredients in the same way a chef does, surprising and delighting you with snacks that defy your expectations.
Our Story
This is a story about passion for food. A story that started with a simple question: How do we make “good for you” snacks more interesting?

Our small group of health-focused people set out to find answers. We sought to start a new company within Abbott…and Curate Snacks was born.


Why Curate?
Curate means to bring things together to share them as a collection. That’s what we do with every ingredient we select and snack we create.

We start with carefully selected, wholesome ingredients—such as Mission figs, balsamic vinegar, quinoa, chia seeds, or lavender. We combine them in unexpected ways until we land on a brilliant combination we hope you’ll love.


Taste Snacks Curated for You
We set the bar high. We’re serious about incredible flavor and real nutrition. Our snacks are filled with protein and are a good source of plant-based fiber, and are lightly sweetened from only natural sources. They are non-GMO and gluten-free and never contain artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.

Join us as we continue to challenge snacking expectations.

About the company

Hodgson Mill has principles that support us and hold us up. We call these our pillars.

We believe in making life better. That starts with making nutritious foods of the highest quality, because we think life's better when you take care of yourself and your health.

We look for grains that are of the highest grade, produced domestically wherever available, and purchased in the United States. That's being a good citizen.

We use only stoneground milling to ensure, unlike other mills, that our products contain the entire nutritional benefit of the grain. That's being a good Miller.

Then we make sure that our products taste great, so you and your family can enjoy the fruits of nature's labors. That's being a good chef.

And finally, we try to make life better in our community and our world, starting with a real commitment to solar and wind power at our mill and an award-winning recycling program. That's being a good neighbor.

When you live a great life, you can take on life with a positive, healthy, optimistic attitude and get it done, whatever "it" is. And because we are proud of our products, and want to share them to help the people who buy and depend on them, we invite them to "Have a Grain Day!"

Packaging Spotlight: Alter Eco Introduces Gone4Good Compostable Quinoa Package




Alter Eco believes in the power of food. Fair trade and organic agriculture sustains farmers and ecosystems. And delivering food with zero waste and carbon insetting will mean a brighter future for all.

That’s why we’re proud to introduce Gone4Good: the first compostable stand-up pouch made from renewable, plant-based, non-GMO materials, making its debut in the form of Alter Eco’s Heirloom Quinoa pouches. All four varieties also come in a new 12 oz pouch and lower price!

Don’t believe it’s compostable? Try it out for yourself!


Plastic packaging makes up over one sixth of the waste in United States landfills. It also sickens millions of fish and birds when they mistake it for food, and might even end up floating in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Some of this trash could have been recycled, but much of it can't – an estimated 17 BILLION plastic pouches were made in 2013, not one of them recyclable or compostable.



Gone4Good is the first compostable stand-up pouch made from renewable, plant-based, non-GMO materials. Just toss it in your backyard compost pile
or green bin, and it will disappear within 3-6 months.
We're calling it Gone4Good because it goes back to where it came from when its useful life is over. With zero waste.

Gone4Good makes its debut in the form of Alter Eco's Heirloom Quinoa pouches. Look for them on the shelves at your local market








About the Company
Alter Eco is based on the premise that food is fundamental to life – and whole, healthy, delicious food can make life better for people all over the world. By working directly with the small-scale farmers who grow our quinoa, rice, sugar and chocolate, helping them institute Fair Trade and Organic practices and assisting them in improving both quality of food and quality of life, we’re creating a system that benefits everyone involved. Our values extend to the flora, fauna and fields – we work with our co-op partners to preserve heirloom grains, replenish and reforest the land. And as a GHG Protocol 3 Carbon Zero business, we offset more carbon than we emit. Read More
