ATH Organics

Stu started ATH Organics in 2012. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: [1]

Q: How did you get started on ATH Organics?

I first started ATH when I realized the need for all-natural supplements that actually taste good. Back in 2012, there weren’t a lot of healthy options for athletes, like me, that cared about what they were putting into their bodies.

Supplements either had a load of synthetic ingredients or they tasted like dirt.

So I decided to start mixing my own.

At first, I had no intention of creating an actual company. All I wanted were all-natural supplements that tasted good and helped me recover after training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

At the time my dream was to compete full-time and have a way to pay for my training.

So I decided to order 50-pound bags of raw ingredients and mixed the first batch in my kitchen. To help pay for the ingredients, I took it to the gym to see if anyone was interested. My training partners were, and the beginning phases of ATH were off the ground.

The early days of ATH included hand-packed single servings

Once I began selling out, I realized I needed to find a contract manufacturer. Mixing the ingredients myself became too time-consuming and I couldn’t keep up. I also knew that if I wanted to turn ATH into an actual business, I needed to work with an FDA-regulated and certified manufacturing facility to produce my product.
