Our Story

Take a behind-the-scenes peek at our history, our people and why we do what we do.

It all started in Peru...

The Navitas Organics Origin Story

In 2003, curiosity about ancient cultures and the wisdom of traditional foods led founder Zach Adelman to a special collaboration with a small farmer cooperative in the altitudes of the Peruvian Andes. Through this partnership, Zach brought the wondrous health benefits of maca to the United States and thus, Navitas Naturals (now known as Navitas Organics) was born. In partnership with his wife, Meghan Adelman, the two built Navitas Organics to share their vision of building health and wellness for people and planet through nutritious food and organic farming at the core of the business.

Since 2003, we expanded our line to bring many more health-enhancing foods harnessing the power of plants to the masses. And today, we are an organic industry leader staying true to our commitment to share ancient, indigenous foods. Driven by the Adelmans’ vision, we continue our commitment to support causes that help reduce environmental burden and improve social and worker justice through ethical and regenerative agricultural practices.
