Nestlé U.S.A., the largest food company in the world, has agreed to buy Irvine-based Orgain, which makes organic protein powder and other products.
Orgain was founded in 2009 by Andrew Abraham, an integrative medicine specialist and cancer survivor. He developed protein-based shakes, powders and snacks based on his belief that everyone deserves access to good, clean nutrition.
“We’ve worked hard to develop innovative products that make a real difference in consumers’ lives,” says Abraham, who will continue to serve as Orgain CEO. “Now, through Nestlé Health Science’s capabilities, resources and dedication to nutrition, we will be able to reach more people around the world.”
