  • About
Company description

Organiponic Inc. aims to promote pesticide-free, healthy and sustainable eating by providing people the opportunity to grow green leafy vegetables and herbs in their homes all year round. Like the microwave and the coffee maker, the company believes that its home-grow systems will disrupt the consumer food market by becoming an integral part of kitchens across the world.

After extensive research in the company headquarters, Organiponic Inc. determined that traditional hydroponic systems faced many challenges - high price points, poor usability, long payback periods, unappealing visual designs, and burdensome clean-up and maintenance processes. The firm has spent the last few years developing, enhancing, and refining its product line to meet the needs of the end user. The systems have been designed to address all of the challenges mentioned here.

Organiponic Inc. has successfully built 9 systems that are fully functional, 3 of which are targeted towards consumers at home.

Organiponic Inc. is a Consumer Products company that is disrupting the $43 Billion Organic Food industry by providing appliances to consumers to grow organic green leafy vegetables and herbs at home free of pesticides on a sustainable basis. Just as the microwave oven became an everyday kitchen appliance, Organiponic believes that health conscious consumers will want to grow fresh produce in their homes year round. Organiponic has developed and tested four consumer systems that will sell for $99 - $479. Each system has features specifically designed with the end-user in mind, namely low price, ease of use and clean-up, and low ongoing cost for grow kits, etc. allowing for 75% savings on fresh quality produce. The systems are designed to work under natural or artificial light, are durable and long lasting. Organiponic systems provide continuous produce meaning little downtime waiting for new plants to grow. Consumers have four systems to choose from - (1) Mini Herb Garden: 6-8 plants, (2) Kitchen Counter Garden (a large and small size): 12-16 plants, (3) Wall/Shelf Garden: 12 plants. An integrated software App will monitor the environment and growth of plants, provide instructions, suggest growing techniques, and notify consumers of opportunities to purchase other products.
