Organix is born
Organix was founded on May 19th, 1992 by Lizzie Vann. An activist, a political campaigner and a business woman who decided to create a baby food brand whose recipes and ingredients used only pure, natural ingredients.
She had a clear vision of what she wanted to make happen. She wanted a world where healthy, nutritious food was a real choice for everyone. She wanted children to eat food that didn’t have anything unnecessary added, or anything important taken away.
Then and there, Organix was born…
Since then, we’ve grown into a full-sized team of passionate individuals, including nutritionists, organic farmers and parents. All of whom are passionately committed to our cause.
Our mission is to transform the poor standards within kids’ food - creating deliciously feel-good food for happy healthy days and is what drives us every day.
Lizzie knew that business can and should change society – for the better. Long before it was popular to put purpose before profit, we were just doing it.
Part of the Hero Family
In 2008, Organix continued to grow and build on delivering its vision, mission and values when it was acquired by the Hero group, an international food company passionate about delicious, organic food - and a natural partner for Organix.
Since their foundation in 1886, Hero’s ethos remains unchanged – making high quality, natural products that are easily available to consumers. They have offices and production facilities spread across five continents, and all 4,000 full-time and part-time colleagues (including us at Organix) are passionate about what they do, and proud to call themselves United Local Heroes.
