Our Story


Path of Life is a family owned, natural and organic food company based in Chicago, Illinois. Created with the desire to make eating better, flavorful and easy for the entire family, Path of Life products are simply good, clean food.

Owners Jason Eckert and Scott Schmidt had both been in the food industry for several years when members of their immediate families’ were diagnosed with serious medical conditions.

While supporting their family members through the treatment process, they both began to learn more about the benefits of eating ‘clean’. In additional to traditional medicine, many also recommended certain foods to help prevent/alleviate their symptoms. As the health of their families improved, they became more passionate about providing more options for families just like theirs.

And just like that…Path of Life was born. Inspired by Psalm 16:11, Path of Life brand initially started out in 2013 with frozen organic broccoli and now includes a full line of frozen products.

"You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand." Psalm 16:11
