Why should I eat organic/chemical-free food?
๐Ÿ‰๐‘ฌ๐’‚๐’• ๐’„๐’‰๐’†๐’Ž๐’Š๐’„๐’‚๐’ ๐’‡๐’“๐’†๐’† - Organic food has a minimal presence of toxic metals and chemicals especially pesticides. Convention farming uses a host of chemicals like fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, and even ripening agents. Many studies have found chemicals in pesticides and heavy metals to be carcinogenic and increase the risk of cancer.

๐Ÿ’ช๐‘ฎ๐’†๐’• ๐’Ž๐’๐’“๐’† ๐’๐’–๐’•๐’“๐’Š๐’†๐’๐’•๐’” - Organic fruits, vegetables, and cereals contain more vitamins, minerals, and ant-oxidants as compared to conventional food. As per a recent study (the largest of its kind) by Newcastle University in the British Journal of Nutrition, organic food contains substantially higher (19-69%) antioxidants compared to conventional products which reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

๐Ÿงฌ ๐‘ฐ๐’Ž๐’‘๐’“๐’๐’—๐’† ๐’ˆ๐’–๐’• ๐’‰๐’†๐’‚๐’๐’•๐’‰ - Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms in the digestive tract. In fact, as per Ayurveda, 95% of all diseases originate in the gut. Organic food is a natural probiotic as it is grown with the help of the naturally occurring microbes in soil as compared to conventional farming where the use of fertilizers destroys the soil microbiome.

๐ŸŒณ๐‘น๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’“๐’”๐’† ๐’„๐’๐’Š๐’Ž๐’‚๐’•๐’† ๐’„๐’‰๐’‚๐’๐’ˆ๐’† - Organic soil acts as a natural reservoir for carbon dioxide through the carbon sequestration process and can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It also becomes more spongy and acts as a natural reservoir for water. Each 1 percent increase in organic matter in the soil helps it hold 20,000 gallons more water per acre and 10 tons of carbon per acre. In fact, studies have shown we can reverse the excess carbon in the atmosphere in 10 to 15 years by converting all farmland to regenerative agriculture.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’๐’‘ ๐’‡๐’‚๐’“๐’Ž๐’†๐’“๐’” - Lastly, organic farming increases income for the farmers as they get better prices for organic fruits and vegetables. Usually, organic farmers go for crop rotation, multi-cropping, mulching, and using natural cow manure which also reduces their input costs and frees them from the debt burden. It also gives them a sense of great pride to serve healthy food to customers.
How do I know the vegetables/fruits delivered to me are really chemical-free?
๐ŸคฑWe only deliver food that we are willing to share with our family. And hereโ€™s how we do it:

๐Ÿ“‹Strictly defined parameters for natural farm selection. Most farms donโ€™t make the cut.
๐Ÿ”ŽRegular image-based and in-person monitoring process
๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพVerified by award-winning natural farmers
๐ŸšœFrequent videos from our farms
๐Ÿš˜Farm visits/chat with farmers on request
Can I visit the farm and see for myself?
Definitely!๐Ÿ˜ƒ We really enjoy farm visits and encourage everyone to experience the joy of plucking from the farm๐Ÿ’. Also, you can personally get to know the farmer who is growing your food and see the hard work put in to grow your food.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ
Is this good for the farmer?
You bet! As the farmers are doing a great service to the people as well as to the environment by doing natural farming, we like to compensate them well. On an average, our farmers are paid 3 times of what they would get in the mandi. We treat them as our family and they take pride in the fact that they are offering healthy, chemical-free food which is loaded with nutrients to customers.
Is this good for the environment?
Ah! This is our favorite part! This is the reason we started it in the first place. If we convert all of the earth's farmlands to natural farming we can reverse climate change within 6 years. Yeah yeah, we know it will take some time to convert all of the farmland to natural farming let's say 15-20 years. But even then this can have a major impact in keeping the temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius by 2050.
How does this work?
Once you subscribe to our monthly plan, a basket of fruit or vegetable would be delivered twice weekly or 8 times in a month. These are chemical-free or organically grown fruits and veggies delivered to you straight from the farm within 12 hours of harvest so that they are really, really fresh.

You can select the size of the basket based on your requirements. The mix of fruits or vegetables would be changed so that it's not boring and all your nutrition requirements are taken off. You can also specify what you like or don't like and we'll try our best to take that into consideration.
How are you different from an organic food retail store?

We are better than an organic store in so many ways. The list is so long, do you have the time to read it? smile

  1. Curated basket - Firstly, we will curate the basket for you with the choicest selection of fresh fruits or vegetables that takes care of all your nutrition requirements. It takes away the hassle of ordering every time and offers an element of a nice surprise.ย 

  2. Meal plan - We will offer a customized meal plan based on your taste preferences so you can reap the maximum benefit from the basket keeping in mind how long each vegetable stays fresh after harvest. Next time your cook asks - 'Didi kya banana hai?' just show him/her the meal plan.

  3. Home delivery - Lushful will deliver a curated basket of farm-fresh, organic fruits and vegetables straight to your home as compared to standing in a queue in an organic supermarket.

  4. Fresher produce - We promise to deliver the produce within 12 hours after harvest from the farm as compared to the supermarket where the produce usually reaches after 72-96 hours.ย 

  5. Healthier fruits & vegetables - Also, in terms of nutrition, you would find our fruits and vegetables better than most supermarkets. And we are not just saying that we have lab reports to prove it.ย 

  6. Better for farmer - Our model is better for the farmer as well as they get paid 3 times higher than the normal mandi prices and there is minimal wastage of farm produce.

  7. Zero food waste - In general, the perishable food supply chain has from 30-40% wastage because of multiple intermediaries and the inventory model of purchase. As we operate on a zero inventory model where we harvest only after we receive an order and fetch the produce straight from the farmer without any middlemen there is zero wastage.ย 

  8. Irrefutable proof of organic produce - We offer organic certification of farms, the exact farm details from where the produce is sourced, and test results from lab/device that shows our produce is grown naturally in a chemical-free environment. This is currently the best in the industry.ย 

  9. Community of conscious consumers - Eventually, we want to create a community of conscious consumers who can interact with each other on our app and grow together on a journey towards healthy living and having zero carbon footprint.
