About Olam
For new players to the natural
foods space, Ms. Mosso says
it's much easier to enter the
category by using non-GMO
ingredients, and then transition
into organic as the brand develops and grows.
"We have larger, consistent volumes
of non-GMO options in our diverse
portfolio of ingredients," she says. "Our
organic program is strong, and it's
growing. With our strong technical
capabilities, we can assist customers
with parallel product development of
non-GMO and organic formulations."
Organic ingredients, in particular
spices, are handled differently from
conventional ingredients. Many
are not available off the shelf. They
require advance planning, cultivation and production. When a
manufacturer is ready to commit to an organic purchasing
schedule, supply can then
be secured.
"It's always important
to keep in mind that
even when agriculture is
at its best, you cannot
make something grow
faster," says Ms. Mosso.
"There's also always
uncertainty regarding
weather and yield."
