Richmond, February 2013 – After releasing a line of innovative coconut products earlier this year, Richmond based Organika Health Products embraces a shower of positive feedback.
With over twenty years of experience in the health supplement industry under their belt, entering the functional food market six years ago has been a rewarding accomplishment for Organika. Today, fourteen unique functional food products fill national and international grocery shelves.
Organika’s Organic Coconut Palm Sugar captivated consumers and retailers alike at the CHFA West in April 2012. Available in 225 g resealable pouches or convenient 1 g To-Go Stick Packs, this delicious functional food was voted as one of the Top 10 Innovative Products by consumers.
Organika’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil landed silver in the prestigious Alive Awards Consumers’ Choice Functional Foods Category in September 2012. This raw coconut oil, which is unbleached, unrefined and undeodorized, also placed bronze in the Alive Awards Functional Foods Category, as voted by retailers.
Making a splash in Toronto at the CHFA East in October 2012, Organika won Best Large Booth against other fantastic competitors. Not only the booth enticed crowds, samples of Organika’s Organic Coconut Nectar Vinegar and Coconut Nectar Vinegar with Raw Wild Honey were extremely well received by consumers, retailers and fellow exhibitors. It is no surprise these vinegars were voted as one of the Top Ten Innovative Products of 2012.
Organika’s products are not alone in the limelight, president and founder Tom Chin has attracted acknowledgement as well. Mr. Chin was ecstatic when he heard the CHFA results and equally thrilled to learn he had been awarded Canadian Leader of the Year in the 2013 Industry Guide. On his entry into the functional food industry, Mr. Chin explained, “It was the next natural and progressive step. We want to provide healthy alternatives in the convenience of everyday items.”
Organika has successfully united some of the top products of the health and grocery industry and is looking forward to more innovations. Please contact an Organika Sales Representative with inquiries or for product information on our award-winning products and line of functional food products.
