Carlsbad, Calif. (February 28, 2020) – The product development team at Om Mushroom Superfood has been working overtime to offer more choices for making organic, functional mushrooms part of your daily routine.
Whether you need a morning boost for their energy and cognitive function levels, a healthy snack alternative for mid-afternoon hunger pangs, or a delicious, de-stressing drink to end the day, Om has you covered, with mushroom-powered products grown in Om's state-of-the-art Certified CGMP indoor farm.
While a new seasonal product or two is the norm for most companies, Om is bringing out ten this spring. It's an audacious expansion for Om, a leader in the functional mushroom category, but for Om's newly expanded management team, the aggressive commitment is part of the plan to support the company's mission to make a positive difference in everyday health with the power of whole food mushrooms.
As CEO Jan Hall explains, Om's product development prowess has much to do with the organization's operational structure and creativity. "Our mushrooms are grown, dried, milled, packed and shipped right here at our HQ in Carlsbad," says Hall. "On-site growth and production lets us experiment with new products and make variations very quickly. We saw an opportunity for customers to incorporate functional mushrooms into their routine at different times of day and created products to do that."
