The shift to organic food, products and lifestyle is the new definition of modern Indian living. Since the past couple of years, there has been a tremendous shift in the way Indians consume their food. People have become conscious about their food choices and prefer eating healthy food that is organic and has high nutritional value. Ambrosia Organic Farms is India’s first organic company that has won several accolades for its innovative organic products and continues to deliver top-quality products across India. Among an extensive range of Ambrosia Organic Farms products, its rice cakes are the most popular among all age groups, especially fitness enthusiasts.

Ambrosia Organic Farm was started by a foreign couple who came to India to set up their business. David Gower and his wife Michaela Kelemen’s paths crossed with Janardan Khorate, who now owns and manages Ambrosia Organic Farms. Janardan Khorate is famously known as Saladbaba after he introduced scrumptious organic salads in 1995. Apart from rice cakes and salads, Janardan Khorate also offers whole foods, beverages, an extensive variety of rice cakes, pickles, flavoured peanut butter, and a lot more.

Here are a few achievements Janardan Khorate has unlocked for himself and Ambrosia Organic Farms:

  • Since 1999, Ambrosia Organic Farm has been a major vegetable delivery partner in Goa.
  • In 2006 and 2007, Ambrosia Organic Farm was honoured with Kokan Diva Award.
  • In 2011, the famous brand received Global India Award.
  • Ambrosia Organic Farm was recognised as a Prestigious brand in 2014 and a Rising brand of Asia Award in 2016.
  • Janardan Khorate was felicitated with the Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2016.
  • For consecutively three years, i.e., 2019, 2020, and 2021, Ambrosia Organic Farm received the Times of India Iconic Organic Food Award. It is nominated for the category this year too. 

In addition, Saladbaba has connected more than 40K farmers to spread awareness about organic farming and how to grow crops and products that have high nutritional value with minimal use of chemicals. Janardhan Khorate shares, “20% of the profit from Ambrosia Organic Farm goes for the education of farmers' children. We also run two schools at the Maharashtra-Goa border, where the children get everything for free. We have connected orphanage schools across Goa and continue providing them with food and clothes. Our customers can donate the clothes and buy Ambrosia Organic Farms’ products free.”
