Company Description

King Arthur Flour sells flour, from traditional all-purpose to nut, speciality, and gluten-free options.

The King Arthur mission is to inspire connections and community by spreading the joy of baking. For every person that pledges their Bake for Good campaign (or for every “Essential Goodness” mix purchased) they donate a meal through their nonprofit partner, Feed America. In 2017 they donated a million meals, and committed to 2 million in 2018; the campaign also includes an annual scholarship and free program teaching kids to bake from scratch. In the interest of transparency, King Arthur Flour shares their annual impact report from B Corp and provides details on their performance scores and future goals, on everything from values and employees to community and environment. Their products are made from unbleached, GMO-free, organic American wheat; no artificial ingredients, flavors, colors, preservatives, or sweeteners.

As America’s oldest flour company (King Arthur was founded in 1790), the brand works to be a resource to bakers of every skill level. The website features an extensive selection of recipes, baking guides, video classes, and more. Additionally, they offer online cooking classes and an in-person baking school at their Vermont and Washington headquarters. For the curious, King Arthur shares a thorough company history online. Beyond their own projects and efforts to educate and engage, King Arthur Flour supports initiatives like The Bread Lab — which explores innovative ways to use regionally available grains — and Greyston Bakery, another Good Company. Plus, since 2004, King Arthur Flour has been a 100% employee-owned company!
