Bob Quinn, founder of Kamut International, will be named an honoree at the Rodale Institute’s Annual Organic Pioneer Awards Dinner, taking place on Sept. 13, 2013. This is the third year that the Rodale Institute has sought out leaders in the organic movement in the United States and awarded them with this prestigious title.
For those who are familiar with the work of Bob Quinn, this award will come as no surprise. Quinn has made it his mission to promote sustainable and organic farming throughout the country—from helping establish the first windmill farm in Montana, to introducing the organic, heirloom grain KAMUT® Brand wheat to the natural products industry in the 1980s. With a Ph.D. in biochemistry, research and education is Bob’s passion and where he puts much of his time and energy. Through years of testing and analysis with top researchers, he is on a mission to help understand the benefits of organic food, as well as the nutrition content of ancient grains.
