About Edison Grainery
Edison Grainery is a family owned business dedicated to bringing affordable premium organic foods to consumers. In 2009, co-owner, Amy Barnes, was diagnosed with multiple cancers and Celiac Disease. During her recovery, which included dietary changes, she discovered the many benefits of a Gluten-Free diet for herself and her family. Disappointed by both the selection and pricing of organic and gluten-free foods found in grocery stores, the Barnes family decided that these foods should not be hard to attain nor be beyond the budget of the average American household; thus Edison Grainery was born.
Edison Grainery has grown to offer over 200 pantry staple items for Retail & Food Service market. Their 30,000 sq ft. warehouse features three dedicated processing lines to deliver products free of known allergens, including "the Big 8".
