Grow, process, pack and market the produce - Farmerpreneur
There germinates a small seed at the rustic countryside of eastern ghat.
OrgTree, farmerpreneur movement. 25,000-mile journey. One step at a time.
Our experiment is with local economy, sustainability, millet.
What if farmer grows, processes, packs at the place where ingredients and raw-material are grown?
The effect is:
- Farmers grow needed raw material in their land. Mostly men are reserved for farming, although we have seen number of women contribution.
They get higher return if the produced grains are sold locally to the industry that is utilizing and providing them high-returns.
- Women work in the same factory and earn.
- Finished goods are directly transported to end consumers which avoids middle men ill effects.
