In a second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Irwin Simon, chairman, president and CEO of Hain Celestial Group (HAIN), a company Cramer said is not done going up.
Simon said that with 60% of Americans now obese, the runway for Hain's all-natural and healthy products is tremendous. He said that consumers are more concerned with how they look and what they eat than ever before, and that leaves plenty of opportunities in front of the company.
Simon also said he's making it a personal objective to change the food served in our nation's schools. He said he's sickened when he sees vending machines peddling candy to our children when there are healthy alternatives out there. Simon said the message is slowly getting out there, but it's not fast enough.When asked about rising commodity and fuel prices, Simon said Hain is in a good position, as it locked in most of its commodities at lower prices last year. He said that fortunately, consumers are willing to pay 10% to 15% more for healthier products, and that helps offset some of the rising costs. Simon also noted that Hain's personal products division, which saw growth decline during the recession, is now starting to rebound. Cramer continued his recommendation of Hain Celestial.
