Our Mission

A gray and white illustration of the planet Earth
We’re on a mission to cultivate a healthier, happier world by spreading goodness through nourishing foods, honest words and conduct that is considerate and forever kind to the planet.

We believe food has the power to impact the future of the planet and everybody on it. From partnering with the farmers who grow our food, to thoughtfully choosing the packaging that our food is shipped in – we’ve always had your family and our planet in mind. Learn why we believe organic is better, how we make our foods, and how together, we’re making a bigger impact.

Annie Withey believed it was possible to build a socially conscious and successful business. This was her mission in 1989, when she wrote her name, address, and phone number on the very first boxes of Annie’s Mac and Cheese. Her legacy lives on as Annie’s strives to change the future for our kids, starting with food.
