Patagonia Provisions was founded in 2012 by Birgit and Patagonia founder and owner Yvon Chouinard as a way to broaden Patagonia’s environmental mission by partnering with forward-thinking farmers, ranchers and fisherman; and today offers a variety of regeneratively-sourced organic food. Under Birgit’s direction, Provisions has introduced a varied line of mission-based food products intended to address critical environmental issues while establishing a model to help restore or rebuild the food chain. Birgit has rapidly expanded Provisions' distribution into national grocery stores and outdoor lifestyle chains, and also introduced Provisions to international markets in Europe and Asia. Through Provisions, she has been a fervent advocate, financial supporter, and partner to a variety of like-minded organizations who follow a similar mission as Patagonia's: "We're in business to save our home planet."
