Organic Products Distributor

Probably, the biggest problem faced by the urban population of India is the increase in the occurrence of lifestyle diseases. The main reason behind such problems, even at the premature stage, is unhealthy food habits and excessive use of artificial chemicals in growing and processing the food. Pollution, on the other hand, is contributing to this problem vividly. Constant exposure to polluted urban air is also taking a toll on the public health. The only way to ensure proper health is via good food habits and using organic products to maintain a proper lifestyle.

The Indian wellness industry is at its best game now. Currently, the industry is promising a constant growth of almost 27% every year. The statistical analysis from FICCI and other regulatory bodies states that this industry will hit the mark of INR 1.5 Trillion by the end of the financial year 2020. The health and wellness industry is a vast prospect where owning a distributorship of organic products is a small yet promising section.

The growing awareness of the urban public regarding proper wellness is a big factor behind the successful growth of the organic products industry. It has become quite easy to get a franchise from a prospective brand.

The section of organic products is a big sector which includes health supplements, beauty products, daily kitchen necessities, and anything related to food. Starting a franchise is very easy as brands reach out to the enthusiasts with their full support and resources.

Steps to come up with a franchise
You will get plethora of ideas regarding getting a franchise and the necessary formalities to be done. For an instance, you will need a particular space to come up with a venue that will match the criteria of the brand.

The second thing you need to concentrate on is the budget you are willing to spend. Based on the two factors, you will scout for the opportunities. The organic brands cater their information on their official websites. You can easily contact them to find the basic requirements. After submitting a proposal to the brands of your choice, the support team will immediately answer your queries. They can also send a team for surveying the area and coming up with the most feasible plan that matches your criteria.

The brands that are leading in this aspect are:

  • Amaara Food Wellness Private Limited

  • Kaaikari Farms

This brand demands an investment of INR 2 to 5 lakhs for getting a distributorship of organic products.
