About Annie's Homegrown

About Annie's
For more than 20 years, Annie's has been nourishing families with simple, down-to-earth foods that taste great and are easy to love. Our passionate team seeks out the best real ingredients Mother Earth has to offer, harvesting pure, natural flavors to make delicious foods every family can feel good about.

It all started with Annie
In 1989, Annie Withey co-founded Annie’s Homegrown, Inc. with Andrew Martin with the goal of making a healthy and delicious macaroni and cheese for families. She also wanted show by example that a successful business could also be socially responsible. Annie chose Bernie, her pet rabbit, to be the brand’s “Rabbit of Approval,” and she put her own address and phone number on each box to encourage customers to connect with her.

Annie's Farm
Today, Annie lives on her certified organic farm in Connecticut with her husband and two daughters where she grows a wide variety of vegetables and flowers for her local co-op and farmer’s market. Annie remains involved in the business, responding to customers and writing the personal letters you’ll find on the back of our boxes. More importantly, she remains the inspiration and corporate conscience for our company and the entire family of Annie’s products.

Staying true to our roots
More than 20 years after our founding, the values that Annie started with still guide our company every day. We’re a mission-driven business grounded in using natural and organic ingredients to make great-tasting products that consumers love. We source ingredients only from places and people we trust. And we work hard to act as a positive role model for consumers and other businesses.

Our Team
Everyone at Annie's shares a common passion for food, people, and the planet we all share. We’re a friendly group that loves the work we do here, and we always strive to treat our customers, suppliers, teammates and all those in the extended Annie’s family with respect, fairness and honesty.

Annie's Homegrown - Macaroni & Cheese Shells & White Cheddar - 6 oz. (170 g)

Annie's has created Organic Shells & White Cheddar. Made just like Annie's original Shells & White Cheddar, but with real Organic white cheddar cheese and Organic pasta. Good source of calcium Good source of protein 0g Trans Fat Low Cholesterol Good Source of Vitamin B1 Good Source of Folate Vegetarian Yeast Free.

It's no surprise that the product most associated with Annie's homegrown is their very first, Annie's Shells & White Cheddar. After twenty years, their beloved purple box remains their rock - a link from the past to the present. Annie's is proud to now bring you the same delicious recipe with certified organic pasta.

So why such a positive response to Annie's purple box from the start? The color purple proves to be eye-catching together with their logo - the quirky, smiling Rabbit (not Seal) of Approval Annie's brother sketched from a photo of Bernie, her pet rabbit. Maybe it's their distinctively delicious, all-natural, ground-breaking White cheddar cheese or those unique cheddar-catching pasta shells. Perhaps above all, Annie's founding mission to make the planet a greener, healthier place resonates with you. All of these answers contribute to the perseverance of their purple box. But Annie believes that you, friends and customers, are the real magic behind the brand.

GOODNESS GROWS
When your roots are in the garden, it's only natural you want to protect the planet and the community that helps you thrive. At Annie's, they believe in getting involved, giving back, and digging in! They help nourish communities by providing healthy food, promoting sustainability and supporting organizations who share their vision. Annie's values all beings and are serious global stewards. They work to make their footprint small, their generosity big and their impact on future generations positive.

GIVING BACK
Gardens are places to connect kids to real food, explore new flavors and talk about where food comes from. Annie's offers Grants for Gardens donations to community gardens, school gardens and other educational programs that connect children directly to gardening. These funds can be used to buy gardening tools, seeds or other needed supplies. Annie's also offers their delicious product to organizations and events promoting gardening and the environment through Cases for Causes.

Annie's is honored that you've let them grow with your families, and that you continue to recommend Annie's to your family, friends, and roommates. Your stories, letter, emails, drawings, photos, recipes, and suggestions inspire them every day. Keep them coming. And keep visiting Annie's website to learn more about their mission, initiatives, products, and the people who make it happen.

SUSTAINABILITY
Annie's is serious about doing good for you and all earth's inhabitants. Recycling, composting, and making smart energy choices are just a few ways they're reducing their bunny footprint. Annie's is always looking at ways to improve, and constantly working on new projects!

Packaging
Annie's chooses packaging materials that are friendly to the Earth. All of their packages are made with recycled content and vegetable based-inks, and all of them can be tossed in the recycling bin. They use post-consumer recycled materials whenever possible – for example, their boxes are made from 100% recycled paper fiber with a minimum of 35% post-consumer content.

Eco Energy
Annie's offsets their carbon footprint with NativeEnergy. Here's how it works- after determining their footprint, they provide funds to NativeEnergy, which in turn builds wind farms, methane digesters and other renewable energy projects. Annie's invites their friends everywhere to take the same proactive approach! Visit www.NativeEnergy.com to offset your travel, auto, home or business emissions by helping to build new renewable energy projects.

On the Road
When Annie's is out on the road at events, they use spoons and forks made from bioplastics, (a renewable plastic made from vegetable proteins.) Their plates and cups are made from sugar-cane waste so they're completely compostable! The EPA estimates that more than 137 BILLION disposable plates end up in landfills each year. Imagine if they could all break down instead of sticking around for generations to come?

Annie's Roots
"My three roles as mom, organic grower, and “Annie” are very much intertwined. At Annie's, we make our products with real ingredients, all found in nature - no artificial anything - and are honored that our loyal friends and customers continue to invite us to share in their family meal time.” –Annie Withey

In 1989, the Annie's team created Annie's Homegrown because they loved convenient comfort food, but didn't love the fake chemical ingredients they saw in many products on grocery store shelves. Annie Withey, mac & cheese creator, also saw this as a chance to create a different kind of company - one that was (and still is!) committed to a sustainable environment. So, she set out to make a delicious, all-natural version of macaroni and cheese. And, faster than bunnies can multiply, Annie's Macaroni & Cheese became a word-of-mouth phenomenon. Annie's brand has now grown to include a whole pantry-full of items, but the same love, attention to detail and commitment to quality goes into every product. 

Today, Annie lives on her certified organic farm in Connecticut with her husband and two daughters, where she grows a wide variety of vegetables and flowers for her local co-op and farmer's market. She remains the inspiration and corporate conscience for the Annie's family of products.
