Our Story

The History of Heritage Health Food

Beginnings

May 2009

A commitment in the present, to the past, to uphold the future.  From the modest beginnings of the Seventh-day Adventist health teachings in the late 1800s came a multi-billion dollar food industry.  With the same commitment toward health and innovation, Heritage Health Food is proud to provide quality, great tasting healthy products in the 21st century, with a hope to meet the ever expanding global food needs.  “ I called my company “Heritage”, because of the strong heritage of food development and the creation of meat-free products that came out of those early pioneer years with an emphasis on helping people find healthier alternative food choices and supporting the health work around the world.   In many ways, we need to re-energize the heritage that was so strong and continue that heritage to a new generation and a waiting world!”
