Ancient People Loved Oats, So Do We!
Over 32,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers during the Paleolithic Era* would grind oats in their pestles as hearty and nutritious meals.

Today, Captain™ continues to bring delicious and nutritious oats to every household by perfecting the recipe with natural premium Australian oats via the OatiFresh™ process. That’s our commitment to you!
