Kamut International has announced that their founder, Bob Quinn, will be named an honoree at the Rodale Institute’s Annual Organic Pioneer Awards Dinner, taking place on September 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.
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 product industry in the 80s. 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.
Bob Quinn is one of three who will be recognized as a 2013 Organic Pioneer. The other two recipients are: Chef Alice Waters, author and restaurateur and Dr. David Pimental, Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University. The Rodale Institute has been a leader in organic research and implementation for the past 60 years. It is their goal to continually provide education to farmers, researchers and consumers on the topic of organic farming.
