After graduating from the University of Southern California (USC) with a degree in International relations and Global Business in 2015, Shriya Naheta Wadhwa returned to India. She had the opportunity to travel to a few organic farms and saw the exceptional produce from a humble potato to exotic rice, all grown using no chemicals. She soon realised that people have little to no access to the high quality produce grown across the country. Determined to bridge the gap, her love for food took her on a journey to find the best produce India has to offer. She spent 1.5 years researching, learning about organic and healthy produce, farming, types of products that grow in India. This led to the establishment of Zama Organics and by the year 2018, they had an active website and sold under Zama. Shriya is also a certified Health Coach brings more value and credibility to what she does.
