Get to know Sprout.

Company History

Sprout Foods, Inc. was launched in 2008 by a small group of like-minded friends who wished to develop wholesome, organic baby food products that tasted like no others on the market. A leader in innovation, Sprout launched the very first baby food in a pouch to provide on-the-go convenience to parents.

Sprout expanded its portfolio to toddler meals in 2012 and, by popular demand, introduced Toddler Snacks a year later as well as nutritious smoothies and snacks for sprouts of all ages. Today, Sprout has more than 50 organic offerings that use only the finest organic ingredients.

At Sprout, we are committed to using whole foods, not from concentrate, and reducing the processing steps to keep our recipes as close to how mother nature intended – right from the earth. Sprout recipes feature tasty combinations of whole fruits, vegetables, and grains that let the amazing taste of the organic ingredients shine through, without the need for additives, fillers, thickeners, or preservatives. It’s our Honesty Pledge.
