Quaker Food & Snacks, a division of PepsiCo
About the Company
The Quaker Oats Company was formed in 1901 when several American pioneers in oat milling came together to incorporate. In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, John Stuart and his son, Robert, and their partner, George Douglas, operated the largest cereal mill of the time. Ferdinand Schumacher, known as "The Oatmeal King," had founded German Mills American Oatmeal Company in 1856. Combining The Quaker Mill Company with the Stuart and Schumacher businesses brought together the top oats milling expertise in the country as The Quaker Oats Company. The first major acquisition of the company was Aunt Jemima Mills Company in 1926. Gatorade was acquired in 1983. In 1986, The Quaker Oats Company acquired the Golden Grain Company, producers of Rice-A-Roni. PepsiCo merged with The Quaker Oats Company in 2001. Our brands today include Quaker oatmeal, Life and Cap'n Crunch ready-to-eat cereals, Aunt Jemima mixes and syrups, and Rice-A-Roni, Pasta Roni and Near East side dishes.
