Sahyadri Farmers Producer Co. Ltd. was established in 2011 under the leadership of Mr. Vilas Shinde. Driven by his vision of making agriculture more profitable and sustainable for farmers, the company has grown to become India’s leading exporter of grapes to Europe.

In addition to marketing services, supplies, and financial support, Sahyadri provides technical advice to its farmers to help them boost efficiency and profitability. At the state-of-the-art facilities in Mohadi, 225 metric tons of fruit are packaged each day. The company employs nearly 3,000 workers from the region.

In addition to expanding its grape export activities, SFPCL is working on establishing similar value chains for all the major fruit and vegetable crops grown in Maharashtra. To this end, a new facility with ripening chambers, packing facility, frozen section, aseptic packing section, and FMCG section has been set up at Mohadi. SFPCL hopes to best serve its farmer members by bringing their produce to both export and domestic markets.

Approximately 1,200 grape farmers and more than 7,000 fruit and vegetable farmers with a combined farmland area of over 20,000 acres are currently contributing to the largest GLOBALG.A.P. certified farmers’ group in India. These figures are expected to grow significantly over the next three years.

Sahyadri truly believes in the potential of Indian agriculture and is working with many other stakeholders to transform Indian agriculture as part of its mission to bridge the gap between rural and urban India.
