In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its
infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn
Soya Foodsa Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based
products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking
consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.
NOW is still family owned as it has been from the beginning. El Richard
started the company in 1968 and the entire family has contributed to the
success of NOW.
