Organo Gold was established in 2008 by Bernardo Chua, assisted by co-founder Shane Morand. Chua had a deep experience in marketing prior to founding Organo Gold, and Morand supervised the company’s selling efforts. The company offers different products such as personal care items, but they are most known for their coffees and teas. Organo Gold is based in Canada in Richmond, British Columbia, but they operate in 45 different countries, having offices in the United States as well. The Organo Gold vision is to help people improve their lives via the products they offer.
While the benefits of coffee and tea are well known, Organo Gold takes things one step further, infusing their products with Ganoderma mushroom powder, which is what sets their products apart and gives them an edge. The powder helps aid a stronger immune system. The Ganoderma powder derives from a fungus which is commonly known as lingzhi in Asia or reishi in North America. The mushroom has been used traditionally in Asian medicine for more than 2000 years, due to its potential beneficial effects on the immune system.
Ganoderma lucidum is used by Organo Gold, the company having a patented process in order to gently crack its wooden shell, thus releasing the power of the spores. The company partners with the largest certified organic plantation of Ganoderma in the world in order to bring to the Western world the Asian herb. The mushrooms are processed into fine powder which is then added to the company’s products, such as supplements, personal care products, and beverages. The company offers 4 different pre brewed coffee packs (café mocha, café latte, black coffee, and café supreme) and additional beverages such as hot chocolate and various types of tea. The drink mixes are all infused with Ganoderma lucidum in order to add a beneficial component.
