The Hain Celestial Group is a food company whose main focus is natural and organic foods and personal care products. Their products range from herbal teas, offered through their Celestial Seasonings brand to organic free range chickens from the FreeBird brand. They also provide organic, whole grain foods through Arrowhead Mills. The company assumed its current form in May 2000 through the merger of the Hain Food Group with Celestial Seasonings, Inc.

History[edit]

Heinz Company acquired 19.5% of the company in 1999,[1] but subsequently divested itself of all holdings in 2005.[2] On May 7, 2002, the company prior year periods had been restated by reclassifying promotional allowances and other sales incentives of $16.8 million in the third quarter of 2001.[3]
