Arran Stephens Interview

Arran Stephens Interview

Posted on December 26th 2016

Arran Stephens was born in 1944 and was raised on Vancouver Island. His parents pioneered sustainable farming in the 1950’s and advised Arran to “leave the earth better than you found it.” After pursuing art and having several successful exhibitions of his paintings in NYC, SF and Vancouver, Arran left for India to study meditation and spirituality with his revered teacher, Sant Kirpal Singh in 1967. Returning seven months later with only $7, a $1,500 loan and blessings, he opened the Golden Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant. He returned to India the following year and married his Life-partner Ratana. Together, they began Nature’s Path Foods in 1985, which, after many struggles, became North America’s largest organic breakfast foods company, employing hundreds at three facilities in US & Canada. In an age of sell-outs, Nature’s Path remains fiercely independent and family-owned. Their children and valued team members are carrying on the torch, with Arran and Ratana serving as mentors.
