What you feed your babies during the first 1,000 days of their lives is critical. And with the market saturated with unhealthy, sugary options, Plum Organics is here to offer a healthy, nutritious alternative. Founded by parents, for parents, the company upended the baby food industry when it cooked up pureed fruits and veggies and packaged them into pouches. With an assortment of organic baby food, organic infant formula, and tots & kids snacks, Plum Organics’ tasty food products will jumpstart a lifetime of healthy eating for your family.
Plum Organics will be at the 2017 LA Baby Show, on November 4 and 5, at the Magic Box at the REEF, in DTLA, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families returns to Los Angeles. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the LA Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Los Angeles County, the surrounding counties, and beyond!
Tickets to the LA Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.

For someone unfamiliar with Plum Organics, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Plum Organics is a leading organic baby food brand with the mission of inspiring a lifetime of healthy eating from the very first bite. A company founded by parents, for parents (that’s why we’re team parent!), we find ways to make your everyday life a little easier–whether it’s nutritious, organic food for your kids or unfiltered conversation with you because parenting takes a team. And we believe that when we share our true experiences, we open ourselves up to solutions that make life more amazing for parents and families.
Tell us about Plum Organics. When did Plum Organics start and how has it evolved since then?
In 2007, Plum Organics was born when a small group of parents came together and reimagined the baby food category as we know it today. The company introduced the first spouted baby food pouch in 2009, which completely revolutionized the baby food industry. And since then, Plum’s been cooking up some delightful blends of pureed fruits and veggies with culinary-inspired ingredients like kale, quinoa, and amaranth. The brand has now expanded beyond baby food to offer yummy snacks for all ages.

What sets Plum Organics apart from other baby food companies in the marketplace?
Plum was founded for parents, by parents on the belief that little ones deserve the healthiest start, even if that means causing a stir in the baby food industry. Is white rice cereal really the right first food? Is picky eating guaranteed? How can we inspire a lifetime of healthy eating? These were the questions the brand’s parent-founders asked, and they realized that part of Plum’s contribution would be to help raise the next generation to crave super foods, skip the junk, and eat adventurously by developing convenient, nutritious products that solve real problems for parents. These beliefs guide Plum’s product development every day.
Along with that disruptive and industry-shifting thinking, Plum pioneered the spouted pouch design in the U.S. market in 2009, completely revolutionizing the baby food category. Plum was also among the first to introduce sophisticated ingredients and flavor profiles to the baby and toddler category (including Greek yogurt, ancient grains, herbs & spices) that were not commonly found in baby food.
What makes your product or service stand out from all of the rest?
Since Plum launched in 2007, we’ve been on a mission to nourish little ones with the very best food from the very first bite. As one of the nation’s leading organic baby food brands, we take a modern approach when it comes to family nutrition. We’re passionate about creating unique, culinary-inspired recipes and trendy, sophisticated ingredients. Because we believe that introducing a wide variety of nutritious foods from the beginning can impact babies’ palates and preferences towards healthy foods for life. In addition to organic baby food, we offer organic infant formula and a variety of tots & kids snack products to help make parents’ lives just a little bit easier (because we all know organic fruits and veggies don’t puree themselves!).
