Hidden Gems: Meet Andrene Grant of Zuri Organix LLC

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrene Grant.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was born in western Jamaica and moved to the capital city at the age of 17years old to attend university. I found myself with less time on my hands, my hair started to get thin and damaged. i tried many products to repair my hair with no success, so i did some research and started experimenting with traditional Jamaican coconut oil and other natural Jamaican herbs. Over time i improved the formula and crafted a mix that promotes hair growth, thickens hair, soothes the scalp and locks in moisture. I began sharing this product with friends and family knowing that many persons would love to have healthier hair and they loved it. After a while i also began to experiment with organic skin care products, mainly organic soaps made from natural herbs and spices grown in Jamaica such a ginger, turmeric, aloevera and moringa just to name a few. After finishing university the pandemic struck and that is when Zuri Organix was born. The Coconut-Hemp Hair and Scalp Treatment was my first product and was loved by many. Business was doing well and new products came long. I migrated to the United States and decide to relaunch my business now known as Zuri Organix LLC.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road, a few hiccups here and there but nothing that coud not be fixed. My biggest challenge was finding a reasonably priced supplier with quality raw material and packaging supplies, however at the time i was employed to a shipping company so i had the opportunity to ship my raw material at a cheaper cost. Another challenge i had was learning about marketing, photography and content creation, my brother whose career focuses on Information Technology and UX/UI deign helped me along the way and taught me new things constantly so i am grateful for his support. My current challenge is building a new customer base. Since i migrated to the US i lost my customer base in Jamaica and it has been a challenge building a new customer base due to the difference in business enviroments.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
What i love about Baltimore is the culture and countless number of attractions and entertainment spots you can find at every little corner. However what i love MOST is the harbour because it reminds me of my home in Jamaica. I recently moved to this area so i am not sure as yet What i like least about Baltimore.
