Quaker's history traces back to 1901, when several American pioneers in oat milling came together to incorporate under the name The Quaker Oats Company. It all started in the late 1800s when three different Midwest milling companies had independently begun to process and sell high-quality oats for the consumer giving the American family a product that would be superior in quality to the oats sold in open barrels at general stores.You know us by our brands, which have been around for as long as a century. They are symbols of quality, great taste, and nutrition. Holding No.1 positions in their respective categories are favorites such as Quaker Oats, Quaker Rice Cakes, Chewy Granola Bars and Rice-A-Roni®. With its Aunt Jemima® brand, Quaker, a unit of PepsiCo Beverages & Foods, is also a leading manufacturer of pancake syrups and mixes. It is among the four largest manufacturers of cold cereals with popular brands like Cap’n Crunch® and Life®.
