- A cereal mill in Cedar Rapids, Iowa
- The German Mills American Oatmeal Company
- The Rob Lewis & Co. American Oats and Barley Oatmeal Corporation.
In 1969 Quaker got Fisher-Price, a toy business. Fisher-Price stopped being owned by Quaker in 1991.
In 1994, Quaker bought Snapple for $1.7 billion. Quaker sold it to Triarc in 1997 for $300 million.
In August 2001, Quaker was bought out by Pepsico because Pepsi wanted to own Gatorade and be in the sports beverage market.
