Celebrating 30 Years of History!
Organika is celebrating 30 years! What started as a small range of supplements has grown into an always-evolving collection of products, including some of Canada’s most loved wellness and beauty enhancers. A family-owned and operated company since day one, Organika now counts two generations committed to a singular vision - helping people love living healthy.
It all started in a little van...
Organika started as a modest line of herbal supplements, inspired by a personal story of natural healing: founder Tom Chin, struggling with a nagging kidney ailment, was cured by a herbal remedy and, inspired by the experience, sought out to spread the word of natural health across Canada.
Organika's initial lineup consisted of four supplements - Coenzyme Q10, Garlic, Korean Red Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba. Tom would drive around in his van and personally deliver products to health food stores. In 1996, Organika opened its very first in-house manufacturing facility to oversee every step of the process and ensure the quality of its products. And the rest, as they say, is history…
We’ve grown and changed a whole lot since then – nowadays, we’re a growing team led by second-generation leaders Aaron and Jordan Chin. In recent years, Organika has been making waves in the wellness industry with a razor-sharp focus on innovation, bringing many exciting firsts to the Canadian market, like our Enhanced Collagen and Bone Broth powders, our Plant-based Collagen Boosters and our Effervess marine collagen tablets!
