Alpen muesli cereal was originally manufactured in the late 1960s by Weetabix.
It is was done so as a reaction to the natural, organic and environmental movements sweeping the U.S. and UK.
Alpen is a whole grain muesli cereal based on rolled oats, fruits and nuts with no preservatives or artificial flavours or colours.
In the UK, Alpen has been a staple on British shelves since the 1970s.
Itt appeared in the early 1970s in Canada and then in the US in the 1990s after Weetabix established a partnership with natural foods manufacturer, Barbara’s Bakery. (source)
