WhiteWave Foods (WWAV): Cramer sat down with Gregg Engles, chairman and CEO of WhiteWave, the organic food company that's seen its shares rise 60% since Cramer last checked in back in February 2014. WhiteWave is currently an Action Alerts PLUS holding.

Engles said WhiteWave hasn't had any problems sourcing products like almonds and cashews because the company represents a very small portion of that market. However, WhiteWave did have issues with organic lettuce because weather issues created short-term supply constraints he said should be rectified soon.

When asked about the company's overall business, Engles said more and more customers are looking for healthy alternatives to dairy and products like cashew milk offers them the taste and creamy texture they desire.

Turning to the issue of supply and demand in the organic food market, Engles said more land is slowly converting to organic but demand is still outstripping supply. Engles is bullish on WhiteWave's prospects overseas, too, noting Europe remains strong as are his company's prospects in China.
