The natural product industry is booming and showing no signs of slowing. Big brands are taking note by scooping up smaller, innovative companies that are disrupting consumer products by adding a natural twist. Michael Cammarata, Co-Founder and CEO of Schmidt's Naturals, shared why his company was such an attractive target for Unilever.

Cammarata said Unilever was drawn to his brand due to its rapid growth and ability to go to market quickly. He said consumers have been the brands biggest advocate. The entrepreneur also added that the Unilever focuses on the founders and allows them to continue to operate the way they want.

All-natural has been all the rage as consumers increasingly opt for chemical-free products. He says his brand is unique because they focused on competing with brands in the traditional space. He added consumers are realizing products with natural ingredients are delivering similar results as the initial products.
