OGMO literally translates to Organic Move. A movement towards going green and providing solution to solve sustainability crisis through food options.
It also signifies our drive to minimize the use of harmful chemicals at our farm and also represents our efforts to maintain clean label for our food products.
OGMO started with a drive to innovate food products that create positive impact on our community by:
- Creating sustainable products using minor millets (drought resistant and saves water)
- Being eco-friendly in their usage, production and disposable.
- Supporting & empowering farmers of our village
- Promoting better health with plant based food
- Our passion for healthy eating.
- Drive for quality
- Being customer-focused
Our food is clean, wholesome and minimally-processed, which is much closer to nature and is devoid of any artificial colour or flavours.
- We strive to conserve water by using minor millets in our products which require 80% less water than rice or wheat crops.
- We are privileged to have started our venture from a small village of hard working farmers at our farm.
- With OGMO came a larger and defined mission to serve and support small family farmers from our village and to cultivate a better world for them.
- We strive to connect people more closely to the natural world and the communities that produce our ingredients.

How it began
Every business starts with an idea. And ours was breakfast. Our story began with the desire to create an alternative to the morning kitchen rituals that felt like work.
Early morning is my favorite time of the day. Brewing up a comforting cup of tea and sitting down to enjoy in the calm surrounding can set the tone for the entire day.
My morning routine took a turn for the worse for the last couple of years, due to my hectic work schedule. Making a cup of tea became a far cry let alone cooking a decent breakfast for my family.
Some things in life are worth changing
It was then that I came across a cook-free breakfast recipe called Overnight porridge popularized by many of my fellow food bloggers on the net.
This no-cook breakfast option came as a great relief for my stressful morning routine. All it needs is to add wholegrain flakes in a mason jar, fill with milk and a dash of curd and refrigerate overnight and a power breakfast will be ready the next morning.
From then, my kitchen used to be filled with jars of seeds, various flakes, nuts, dried fruits and spices which go to make various blends of overnight breakfast mixes each day.
And morning time became beautiful again.
The new beginning..
I wanted to make the process even simpler by opting for ready to make breakfast mixes and reduce ingredient hunting time, measuring and preparing for my breakfast.
But I couldn’t find any option in Indian market to suit my needs. I realized I would have to make my own mixes or go without.
And that is when OGMO was born.
OGMO is more than just a business project. It is the desire to share our passion for healthy eating by creating convenient foods that is perfect for people with busy lifestyles.
