The Artisan Grains brand was developed in 2012 by enthusiastic foodie Sam Jacobi, who was frustrated at the limited range of grains on the market and the lack of information available on the packaging â€“ he wanted to be inspired at the point of purchase with recipe ideas and serving suggestions without having to resort to Google!
Applying his 20 years experience in the health food trade, Sam set about developing a core range of grains and â€˜good-for-youâ€™ ingredients to offer consumers variety and convenience â€“ from novel Multi-Grain Couscous and Greenwheat Freekeh to Chia Seeds and Quinoa blends.
