Buy this natural stock with tons of organic growth

The turnaround is here for the organic and natural food movement. Just a few years ago, shoppers who wanted to eat natural and organic food only really had Whole Foods for shopping. However Jim Cramer thinks those days are now over and Hain Celestial is right in the center of this trend.

Heck, even Wal-Mart has gone organic!

With the general public now embracing the concept of health and wellness more than ever, that explains why Hain has had strong results.

"In this environment, you need to find stocks that will keep working for you long term, regardless of the market's day-to-day swings. That is why I remain a big fan of Hain Celestial," said the "Mad Money" host.

Hain reported earnings on Wednesday, and while the big picture remained strong for the company, the sales were a big below analyst estimates, and it did lower guidance as well. Cramer attributed the weakness largely to currency issues overseas.

Its core brands remain strong however, with brands like Celestial Seasonings, Earth's Best, Terra and Garden of Eatin' driving margins up.

To find out where the company could be headed Cramer spoke with Irwin Simon, CEO of Hain Celestial Group.

Simon commented on the fast growth of natural products in stores like Wal-Mart when he said "Wal-Mart knows there are consumers coming in there who want healthy foods. Whole Foods, Sprout have been the innovators and the foundation of it."

In fact, stores like Target have given aisles to Hain for displaying its food, and convenience chain 7-Eleven now carries it as well.

"When you're coming into 7-Eleven and you want snacks today, you want healthier snacks," said the CEO.

Simon noted that the organic trend has gone beyond just snacking at corner grocers and has crept into consumer homes.

"The Super Bowl this past weekend was one of our biggest snacking seasons. Our snack business on consumption has been up over 30 percent," he said.

Why is this trend becoming so popular—is it younger people that are more health conscious, or older people who want to live longer?

"It's millennials, millennials, millennials. And they are educated," said Simon.
