Shriya Naheta is a first-time entrepreneur, intent on creating an ecosystem for organic food produce and a collaborative environment for farmers and end customers. She created the start-up Zama Organics in a first step towards realising this vision.
Shriya launched Zama Organics in late 2017 and began to deliver fresh organic produce and spices in Mumbai. With a network of over 50,000 farmers across India, the Mumbai-based start-up offers produce from all across the country.
The start-up sources produce from indigenous regions - black rice and tea come from Assam, avocados from the Northeast or South India, mangoes, black pepper and turmeric from the Konkan belt and even works with tribal communities for products like morel mushrooms.
According to an article on yourstory.com, Shriya is now working to create a support system for farmers to help them with training, certification processes, groundwork and more. She hopes to launch the same in November this year.
