IT ALL STARTED WITH A (BEAUTIFUL) DREAM.
From farmers markets to grocery stores, we're humbled to be fueling the good folks across this fine nation.
Stoked Oats was founded in 2011 by three oatmeal loving athletes. Unable to find the ultimate breakfast to support their busy and active lifestyles, they began making their own oatmeal blends. With the goal of creating the healthiest oatmeal on the market, all Stoked Oats blends include highly nutritious “superfood” ingredients including chia, flax, and gluten free oats.
Stoked Oats has grown significantly since it’s debut at the Millarville Farmers Market near Calgary Alberta in June 2012; is now sold in over 700 stores across Canada by major retailers such as Sobeys, Save On Foods, and CO-OP. Stoked Oats has become the breakfast of choice for health conscious individuals and families who want to put the cleanest, and most nutritious ingredients into their bodies. During this time, Stoked Oats has built a very loyal following across Canada from customers who love the taste, quality, and nutritional benefits of our product.
We believe in giving back to our community, and to deserving athletes and community minded people. It's who we are, and it's where we came from. In a time where a lot of larger companies are clawing back events and reducing athlete sponsorship, we feel that it is important to give back to those who have helped us grow into Canada's favourite gluten-free oatmeal company. We've supported events and athletes since our inception in 2011, and will continue to do so for as long as we're making oatmeal.
