Founded as Stake Technology LTD, a company intent on capitalizing on proprietary steam explosion technology to convert biomass into feedstock by pulverizing trees to extract the cellulose thereby using trees to feed animals instead of “people food” like corn and soy. As they began to acquire more assets, their name changed in 2003 to SunOpta due to the company’s effort to Optimize what the Sun Grows.
