ICAR-IIHR ties up with Waycool Foods

ICAR-Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bengaluru, a premier Institute in the country for Horticultural Research and Education has tied up with Waycool Foods and Products Private Limited, Chennai to provide technical solutions in improving the Post Harvest Management of fresh vegetables. Waycool Foods and Products Pvt Ltd is one of the India’s farm-to-fork supply chain company which serves over 150 clients across retail, hotels, restaurants and Institutions. The company has a strong relation with about 15000 farmers across 9 states for procuring fresh fruits and vegetables.  High humidity storage boxes help in retaining the freshness, texture through reduced moisture loss and spoilage, thereby extending the shelf life of green leafy vegetables. The boxes were tested for Amaranthus, coriander, mint, spinach and fenugreek. We had tested the Arka High Humidity Storage boxes designed and developed by ICAR-IIHR at one of the client's retail outlet and Distribution Centre in Chennai and found them promising in extending the shelf life of green leafies said Mr. Karthik Jayaraman, CEO and Director, Waycool Foods and Products Pvt Ltd. As our mission is to deliver cleaner, fresher and better produce to consumers, generate higher returns to farmers, we look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship with IIHR so as to ensure better returns for the farmers and delivery of healthy fresh produce to the consumers remarked Karthik, while signing an agreement with IIHR. ICAR-IIHR has developed simple, affordable and farmer-friendly technologies for handling, storage and transportation of fresh horticultural produce with a goal to connect the farmers directly to the Supply chain management companies, like Waycool, said Dr. H S Oberoi, Head, Division of PHT & AE, IIHR. Our endeavour is to see a smile on the farmer's face through better remuneration for his produce, bring in interventions in all the aspects of supply chain of horticultural commodities and ensure a safe and healthy fresh produce to the consumer, remarked Dr. M R Dinesh, Director IIHR. We would like to popularize such simple and low cost interventions among the farmers. FPOs and supply chain companies across the country said Dr. M R Dinesh
