Suminter Organics is an Indian based B2B supply chain management company for organic agricultural products. The company sources, processes and exports organic GMO-free agricultural products to more than 250 food brands spread across 20+ countries in the Americas and European regions, including several of the world’s largest consumer brands for supply of products.

Agricultural produce, such as soybean, cotton, coconut, spices, oilseeds and sugar, is sourced from small-scale farmers, whom Suminter Organics assists in converting to certified organic cultivation.

Through the company’s various agricultural services, Suminter empowers the farmers by providing them training on organic & natural farming methods and promoting sustainable technologies. It also provides live demonstrations on seed treatment, plant nursery, compost preparation & crop pest control enabling the farmers to get the best yields possible for their crops using natural and sustainable technologies for cultivation.
