Clearwater Country Foods

The Moser family immigrated from the Alps of Switzerland to the Pacific North Western United States in the mid-1800. Douglas Moser is the 4th generation to till the fertile valleys of the Pacific Northwest's Palouse region.

A HISTORY OF QUALITY, A VISION OF INNOVATION * The Mosers were among the first producers in the United States to grow garbanzo beans, at one time in the early 1980's, producing over half of all US production. Having developed both machinery and methods the Mosers helped the garbanzo industry flourish to produce now well over 100,000 domestic acres. But always striving to help the farm-world, the family developed a method by which to harvest and deliver a Fresh-Picked Green Garbanzo�??®.

* Although a challenging endeavor, the Moser family carried its dream to a reality in the summer of 2003. Invented, patented, and cultivated by the family, this superior legume is unique in appearance, flavor, and nutritional value, providing consumers with a naturally healthy and high-fiber alternative. With the environment and the customer always coming first, the company has a goal to aspire & produce the safest food possible, by using natural, earth-friendly and environmentally sustainable methods.

A HISTORY OF THE GARBANZO BEAN * The dried garbanzo bean or chickpea (as it's commonly known) has been cultivated for over 10,000 years; making it among the first flora in the world.

* It was written about in the civilization of Babylon and Jericho dating back as far as 7,900 B.C.

* The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and even the Roman Empire grew garbanzos which provided these early cultures a popular staple.

* Today modern production encompasses over 70 million acres worldwide, with only about 100,000�??± grown in the United States.

COMPANY PRACTICES The Moser Family strives for excellence in both product and practice.
