NOW Foods Company Profile

05:36 EDT 25th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, an entrepreneur named Paul Richard bought Fearn-Soya Foods,a manufacturer of grain and legume-based products in the Chicago area, for $900. Thus began a six-decade legacy of supplying consumers nationwide with high-quality, affordable nutritional products.Paul carefully nurtured his fledgling business until 1960, when his son, Elwood Richard, inherited part ownership in Fearn and became the company’s president. Elwood adopted his father’s ideals concerning health and well being, including his vision of making quality supplements and natural foods available to the public at prices they could afford. Elwood opened the first of many Fruitful Yield retail stores in the Chicago area devoted to natural products, and, as time passed, both Fearn-Soya and the company’s retail chain grew and prospered under Elwood’s leadership.
