Organic Haus Has Opened In Kemps Corner

March 14, 2012 3:37 pm by

So far, our consumption of organic foods has been restricted to vegetables and fruits, which we buy at the weekly Farmers’ Market. Now with the launch of Organic Haus, a new organic foods store, which opened today, Wednesday, March 14, in Kemps Corner, we intend to make room for more of it in our larder. Ahmedabad-based Organic Haus, which had exhibited a limited selection of their products at a pop-up store at the Trident in December 2011, offers a whole lot of choice at its first Mumbai outlet. The 1,400 square feet store stocks over 800 products across 18 categories that include home care, cosmetics, slimming solutions and nutritional supplements.

The majority of the products are imported from Germany and a few from Austria. The staff is knowledgeable and the goods are neatly displayed in shelves according to their use. For instance, they have a shelf dedicated to ingredients such as pastas, olive oils and pasta sauces, and another one for breakfast-related items such as cereals, unsweetened granola, flavoured honeys, fruit jams, peanut butter and preserves made of macadamia nuts, almonds and hazelnuts. Their prominently displayed nutritional supplements such as Vitamin D extracts, and iron, zinc and magnesium formulas, are all in the form of syrups.

We were most pleased to find organic chocolates by German brands Rapunzel and Vivani in flavours such as coconut and hazelnut and in both milk and dark varieties. Organic Haus also sells snacks such as sesame crackers, rice crispies, chocolate-coated biscuits and cereal bars. A selection of the food products are served in sample trays for tasting (try the vegetable pâtés, available in flavours such as mushroom, rucola, basil and aubergine), and you will also find testers for their limited cosmetic range that includes lipsticks, eyeshadows, lipglosses, mascaras and eyeliners from a “green” German make-up brand called Sante. While the products aren’t cheap (prices start at Rs190 for a bar of chocolate), you’re likely to end up paying the same amount of money for imported gourmet ingredients at stores like Nature’s Basket.

    You can check out Organic Garden instead http://www.organicgarden.co.in.
    They have organic food stores all over Mumbai which are locally sourced and all certified by Ecocert.
    I don’t know how much sense it makes to import organic food. It defeats the whole purpose of nature friendly and organic.

    We apologise for this unfortunate incident and regret the inconvenience caused to you.

    People, I bought few products & jams from south Mumbai store which when opened had smelling fungus, point to be noted that expiry is in 2013. When informed & posted about problem, they completely ignored & deleted my complaint instead of resolving. My son was almost about to have it. Thanks to jesus that I saw this. Where are guys from food & safety? how can they be ignorant?
