Manjunath, an IT professional working in USA met Ambrose, an organic farmer doing natural farming during one of his visits to his village. That changed lives of Ambrose and Manju. Manju never returned back to USA and started this initiative. Over the years this duo through constant focus on Quality, Transparency, Innovation earned the trust of many families. On transparency, Lumiere Spring Festival at their farm showed how Lumiere grows it's vegetables - attended by 800 customers. Mango Festival and Jack fruit Festival that showed 99 traditional recipes collected from various villages to it's customers. The food is served in traditional alloy plates that has medicinal benefits and Lumiere encourages eating by hand. The interiors of the stores carry lot of natural elements and carries products that can help a family to go chemical free completely - from cleaning, washing, cosmetics to entire groceries, fruits and vegetables.

"Organic is a very trusted business, even a small deviation will impact quality. I was really impressed with Ambrose's and Manjunath's passion. Ambrose who lives in the farm ensures quality from seed-to-table. Even the crates that they use to deliver vegetables, shows Ambrose's passion towards aesthetics and quality.While these days ventures are trying to attract customers with offers, here is Lumiere working on basic principles of business - just providing quality service and earning customer trust, making them into Angels. I am happy to be one of them" said Nagaraja Prakasam, Founder Chairman, Native Angles Network - Angel Investor in Lumiere Organic.
