Numerous breakfast cereal brands are owned by the company Attune Foods: the organic Erewhon brand and non-organic, conventional brands Uncle Sam, New Morning and Skinner’s Raisin Bran. Attune was acquired by Post Foods in 2013, which is in turn a property of Ralcorp Holdings.

They write: “Skinner’s Raisin Bran was introduced in 1926, and is proud to be America’s first raisin bran. Today, is still one of the few raisin bran cereals made from traditional whole grain wheat. Unlike many raisin bran cereals, Skinner’s never uses batter or slurries to make its flakes. Each flake is made from a whole wheat berry which is steamed, rolled and toasted. Skinner’s Raisin Bran is verified as non-GMO by the non-GMO project.”
