In 1989, Annie Withey started making mac & cheese in her home kitchen using the simplest and best ingredients she could find. This year marks our 25th anniversary, and we're proud we're still making good on Annie's promise that real food tastes better. We couldn't have gotten this far without you. Learn more about the history of Annie's and how our mac & cheese came to be!

Hop back in time with us!

For 25 years, goodness has been at the heart of everything we do—from our
real ingredients, to our great-tasting products to our sustainable business practices.
