Our Foundation focuses on 3 main thrust areas which we believe are critical in the journey of India from a Developing Nation to Developed Nation.
Education | Health | Culture & Communities
Public Schools in India are facing crumbling infrastructure. Hence, we keep identifying public schools in proximity to our facility locations and constantly help them in improving their infrastructure .
Rural population in India have minimal access to quality diagnostics which can help prevention of critical illness. Hence, we regularly organize free medical camps in rural areas in proximity to our operations so that people have access to preventive care.
We support community building programs in the vicinity of our operations that encourage harmony & culture enrichment.
We focus on minimizing our impact on the environment and over the years we have taken multiple steps to reduce, reuse and recycle consumables & waste at every stage of our process. The three broad areas where we have focussed our efforts to pave the way for a greener tomorrow
Water | Energy | Waste Management
We understand the importance of conserving the most critical resource on our plant- Water. All our facilities have rain water harvesting pits and our new facility at Nashik is designed to be 100% self-sufficient by harvesting all the rain water there-by not depleting the underground water-table
All of our facilities have renewable energy sources. Our new facility at Nashik is 100% on sustainable energy. Our Roof-mounted solar panels generate enough electricity to power all our day to day operations including our pack houses, cold storages, common areas, office etc
We have created a robust program to decompose the fruit and vegetable waste generated in our facilities and is offered to our farms & contract farmers as organic manure. All our facilities have ETP’s to recycle the waste water which is then used for landscaping & greenery maintenance
As a philosphy, we focus on providing opportunities to rural, marginal, un-educated and under-educated women at all our facilities and farms. From employing 25 women workers a decade back, today we have over 500+ women working at our farms and facilities
We have worked on moving the women from unskilled roles to semi-skilled roles like operating machinery, stock keeping, supervision etc
90% of our workforce are women with very low attrition as they are provided with better pay, transportation, congenial work environment and other social benefits
Our farmers are the most valued stake-holders in our value-chain and we always have been transparent on pricing & commercials while also hand-holding them through technical and better growing practices
