Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods

Considering how many Red Mill products I've been buying lately (i.e. shredded coconut, almond flour), I was delighted to read this article. Apparently, Bob, the owner, decided to give the company over to his employees on his 81st birthday. From the article:

Scores of employees gathered to help Bob Moore celebrate his 81st birthday this week at the company that bears his name, Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods.

Moore, whose mutual love of healthful eating and old-world technologies spawned an internationally distributed line of products, responded with a gift of his own — the whole company. The Employee Stock Ownership Plan that Moore unveiled means that his 209 employees now own the place and its 400 offerings of stone-ground flours, cereals and bread mixes.

Such a delightful story that certainly makes giving over my cash for high quality and delicious product even easier.
