Grains, Elevated

We’re grain people, from stalk to seed. Being rooted in the center of wild rice country makes that pretty easy. But our dedication goes beyond the seasonal harvest. We choose grains from the most ideal growing climates across the world—from Italy to Peru to Southeast Asia and beyond. Our chefs create awe-inspiring recipes for some of the industry’s top chefs and restaurants. This is more than a mission. It’s a fascination with making grains better, special, richer, impressive. In other words, elevated.

When it comes to nutrition
the best whole grains come whole

Intact grains have three original parts (the bran, endosperm and germ), but one or two of these parts are often removed during processing. The result is a less-nutritious grain—something we’re less than enthusiastic about. So we keep most of our grains intact to let everyone from cafés to K12 enjoy great nourishment from great dishes.

Cultivating Quality

Elevated Standards

Our quality control standards are some of the strictest and safest in the industry. Our facilities and packaging are GFSI (BRC) certified and our grains go through three testing and cleaning methods, including optical-infrared color sorting to ensure your grains are clean, unbroken and ready for development.

Bringing Flavor Back

Many of today’s modified grains have lost the unique flavors and nutritional profiles of past varieties. But through careful research and experimentation—along with cooperation with seed banks, growers and growing communities—we’ve been able to reproduce heirloom grains and all of their wonderful attributes.


Few others can match our unyielding obsession for grains like our growers can. This is the reason we source from family farms, and often keep those relationships for decades. Because when just one bite can deliver an amazing taste, every last grain has to be the best. Together, we’ll make sure of that.
