It is certainly an entrepreneurial mindset that could create an opportunity after identifying the gap in the market while serving humanity and also creating opportunities for others. The story of Himalaya Bio-organic Foods Pvt Ltd is a striking instance of this.

Till last four-five years, most among people were not aware of the availability of organic food products in J&K. The organic products used to be imported from outside J&K, which were usually unaffordable for middleclass families and their authenticity, sometimes was doubtful. With a vision to develop a business which will not only cater to consumers’ requirements for authentic organic food on affordable prices but also provide employment to thousands of local farmers, Pooja Gupta took an initiative to launch Nimbark brand with a complete range of Organic kitchen, grocery as well as health products under Himalaya Bio Organic Pvt Ltd, a sister concern of famous Sarveshwar Foods.

Pooja Gupta belongs to a very religious family which believes in spirituality and a “SATVIK” lifestyle. The day starts with paying obeisance to Lord Krishna; food is first offered to Lord Krishna and then eaten by all family members like Prasadam. Pooja was inspired by her father in law Sh. Suraj Prakash Gupta, a pure & religious soul and her husband Sh. Rohit Gupta, chairman of Sarveshwar Foods Ltd to form this brand. “NIMBARK” became a famous brand not only in both capital cities of J&K but also in states like Punjab, Delhi and Mumbai. NIMBARK Organic food products are manufactured and tested in labs keeping in view strict norms of USDA, Indian Organics, Apeda etc.

It becomes a space in which individuals can communicate their ambitions resulting in job satisfaction and an increase in motivation.

Having both women and men as prominent figures in the company will ensure effective communication and engagement with customers and clients, really helping businesses to stand out from competitors. Moreover, a gender-diverse workforce also provides easier access to resources, such as various sources of credit, multiple sources of information, and wider industry knowledge.
