Founder, Bob's Red Mill
Bob Moore founded Bob’s Red Mill in 1978 after an earlier career in the auto mechanics business. The company produces all natural whole-grain products that are prepared in the age-old tradition of quartz stone grinding. Based in Portland Oregon, Bob’s Red Mill provides roughly 400 natural grain products to natural food stores across the United States. In 2010, at 81 years old Bob turned the company over to his more than 200 employees through an ESOP (Employee Stock Option Plan).
Bob speaks to Jessica about his appreciation for natural whole grain foods, the role that spirituality has played in his entrepreneurial life, and the founding of Bob’s Red Mill from scratch.
