Arran Stephens

CEO, Founder and Owner of Nature's Path Foods, Inc.
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER

Arran Stephens is an acclaimed international speaker on the benefits of organics, vegetarianism and sustainability. He and his wife, Ratana, opened Canada’s first vegetarian restaurant in 1967. Mr. Stephens also founded Nature’s Path Foods, Inc., North America’s largest organic breakfast foods company. 

Arran’s inspiring message that he received from his father, “Leave the soil better than you found it,” has inspired an entire community. This message underscores his work at Nature’s Path and his promotion of non-GMO sustainability and farming practices.

Arran will be sharing fascinating stories and pictures from his 50-year career building what has become North America's largest organic plant-based cereal and snack company. It's a story of tenacity, values, environmentalism, philanthropy, creativity and love, with underpinnings of personal meditation practice. It's a story of hope and how anyone and everyone can and must make changes to avert the catastrophic effects of global warming. It's about becoming the change we want to see in the world.
