Navitas Family


Zach Adelman

CEO and Founder

"We uphold our promise of sourcing the best organic superfoods the world has to offer. Our passion is sharing these global treasures and living life positive as we do it."

Power the positive in your everyday.

Our super-simple, super-nutritious superfoods give you the energy you need to live each day to the fullest.


In fact, Navitas (Nuh-vee-tus) is Latin for 'energy.' We search the globe for the highest-quality organic superfoods to keep you energized. What's more, we work hard to power the positive in all we do: in how we source our products and work to better the greater good. We work with small local farmers who use sustainable organic farming methods to grow our superfoods. We operate with a focus on leaving as light of a footprint on the earth as possible. We also contribute to healthy causes by supporting nonprofit initiatives like A Growing Culture.


Our Culture

We're dedicated to the idea that success isn't just about profits and promotions. Along with 1,800 leading businesses from 130 industries across the world, we have earned B Corporation certification. Certified B Corporations are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Together, Certified B Corporations lead a growing, worldwide movement of people using business as a force for good. For more information about B Corporation Certification, please visit https://www.bcorporation.net.

We also believe that a healthy balance of work and play is the only way to work. We think that without a hearty amount of laughter and humor, no amount of success is worthwhile. And we know that nothing is unattainable when you bring together dedicated, creative, open-minded people and give them the freedom and tools to pursue their ideas.

We get a lot of pleasure from cultivating a healthy environment where we each get a chance to be ourselves and do the work we enjoy. At our campus in Northern California, we are mindful in how we work. For those who work here fitness instruction, wellness counseling and meditation are all part of our daily routine. Our campus is powered by solar panels to reduce our energy footprint.


Our Path

Our story began in 2003 with a strong friendship and a penchant for adventure and wanderlust to exotic regions of the world. Curiosity about ancient cultures and traditional foods led to a special collaboration with a small farmer cooperative in Peru and the discovery of the wondrous health benefits of Maca. Through this relationship, founder Zach Adelman was introduced to a variety of additional health enhancing foods that have been sustainably cultivated and consumed around the world for centuries attributing to longevity and well-being. This new knowledge combined with Zach’s long held passion for healthy, organic food sparked an intense determination to bring these ancient treasures to North America and integrate them into our modern lifestyle. By pioneering the superfood category, the Navitas brand now boasts over 60 products supporting a healthy diet including single ingredients, snack foods, nutritional blends and bars. Today, Navitas is an organic industry leader and has stayed true to its commitment to the discovery of ancient, indigenous foods, vowing to support causes that help reduce environmental burden through ethical agricultural practices.
