To my undiscerning palette, a blueberry muffin made with King Arthur Flour doesn’t taste much different than any other muffin. The 200-year old New England company’s specialty flours cost about the same as their competitors.

But what distinguishes King Arthur from other flours on the supermarket shelf—and reassures bakers they’re buying the absolute best—is the fact that every bag is personally manufactured by the company’s owners.

The entire company is owned by employees—so every person at King Arthur has a real stake in the company’s success—or failure.
