Please describe Organic Wellness Products Pvt Ltd in detail.
Organic Wellness was born as a creative solution with a unique, win-win business model that focuses equally on everyone in the chain, including the farmers, employees, customers, and Mother Earth. We established a state-of-the-art plant in the remote village of Babai, Bundelkhand, where no industrialist would ever venture out, providing a means of livelihood and reducing the exodus from villages. The remote location is free from pollution, which is abundant in cities and offers untouched lands that are used to produce a variety of authentic organic products that include teas, tisanes, and health supplements, formulated through India’s legacy of over 5000 years. Organic Wellness was created with a beautiful vision: Together, Let’s Heal the World.
What was your inspiration behind venturing as an organic products provider?
The news of farmers being driven to the point of taking their own lives has made a grievous mark on all our minds. The farming sector requires more support from its constituents, and that need for support has rightly been a catalyst for the drive behind the growth in the field. The need for more opportunities has also led to a big migration of people searching for livelihoods from their villages to bigger cities, which are already bursting at the seams. Along with this, over time, the medicinal remedies used in our childhoods have been fading into the background of our minds over the decades, despite their real-life efficacies. My father’s regular discussions during my formative days to live a life of purpose made me take the plunge.
What USPs make you stand out as the fastest-growing organic products provider?
The drive behind Organic Wellness is to be a business with a purpose, as every product sold supports a farmer in a remote village and is grown to be certified organic without any negative influence from pollution. Many Organic Wellness products have been formulated from the work of Dr Narendra Singh, seasoned by 40 years of intense research. Range of over 240 authentic Organic products, Original desi seeds and packed/processed in a modern manufacturing plant with Global and domestic quality certifications.
What were the initial challenges after venturing into the field, and what are the challenges now?
One of the biggest challenges we faced was establishing our plant in a remote location and dealing with the logistical and infrastructural problems that came with it. The remote area posed an issue for the transport of material, and the lack of infrastructure in the surrounding area meant a lot of issues with connectivity, such as poor WiFi, which had to be dealt with hands-on. The rural setting meant that many people were excluded from opportunities for education and skill development, which we were able to provide support and training to create meaningful employment opportunities. The current challenge is spreading awareness of the benefits of these products derived from India’s legacy among more people.
Being an experienced leader, share your opinion on how technology is transforming the organic sector and what advancements we can expect in the future.
Technology has become a critical tool for executing every step of the business. The rapid advancement in communication allows us to keep in contact with the farmers, who can work with suppliers and connect with each other in real time. The boom in technology across the country has been vital to the success and functioning of our business model, bringing the initiative to life.
What would be your advice to aspirants willing to venture into your field?
One thing about the industry, in general, is the intense need for patience behind every venture; perseverance is the main resource behind every endeavour. I advise those aspiring to enter the field to do so only if they are passionate about its prosperity.
How do you envision scaling Organic Wellness Products’ scope and offerings in future?
