According to Shriya Naheta Wadhwa, Founder of Zama Organics, "We are really excited to have Mira as our investor as she is holistically committed to clean ingredients and conscious choices. We hope to spread the message of healthy eating and sustainable living together with this collaboration"

"You are what you eat, it's just a fact – wholesome and real food choices are crucial ingredients for a happy and healthy life. As a long-time Zama customer, I'm happy to support Shriya and her vision for Zama Organics as well as her single-minded focus on making clean and healthy eating a way of life while we celebrate our love for food together. I'm excited to be a part of Zama's journey, their approach towards empowering farmers and artisans, and their endeavor to expand the awareness and access to better ingredients for all our kitchens," said Mira Kapoor.

On the anvil are plans for Zama Organics to scale up operations to ensure presence in other cities through their own operations along with a network of e-commerce sites and modern trade stores as well as investing in wider digital messaging via relevant groups of content creators.

Zama Organics works directly with farmers, producers, and artisanal makers to provide high-quality groceries, fresh fruits and veggies that are healthy, organically and sustainably grown.
