“We all die. The goal is not to live forever, the goal is to create something that will” – Chuk Palahnuik, American journalist/novelist.
The humble beginning, dedicating thirty years to build an unparalleled agrarian society, Padmashree Late Appa Saheb Pawar was a visionary social revolutionist who created the brand as what we call it today, BARAMATI AGRO. The company has united a diverse range of agriculture and allied activities in the vertices of Agri businesses evolving as an internationally recognized Agri-conglomerate at par with global standards. Seeded in 1988 as a poultry-focused undertaking, the company has now successfully spread its operations across various sectors such as broiler parent and broiler integration, animal and poultry feed, food processing, sugar and ethanol manufacturing, soap, green energy generation, retailing, and trading of agricultural commodities, fruits, and vegetables. The company’s value is deep-rooted in collective empowerment with the vision to be a value-based company with leadership role in domestic as well as international markets and to continuously strive to create value for all its stakeholders by “Linking the Basics”.
Working with the farmers, the company believed in building a wealthy community for them. The farmers of Baramati region had always struggled to fulfil their basic needs as agriculture in the area was entirely dependent on rains. This is when Dr Appa Saheb Pawar introduced the farmers to poultry and dairy farming, as an alternative source of income. He educated them about sustainable agricultural practices and trained them to adopt new scientific and innovative technologies. He provided them with a definite market through developing processing and manufacturing units. He diversified into various sectors to create a sense of fulfilment among the farmers and build a wholesome community. Additionally, the company is dedicated towards improving the soil health. It has introduced a range of organic inputs, with a primary focus towards improvising the soil quality, soil yield and product quality without disrupting the soil health.
Taking the legacy forward, Mr. Rajendra Pawar, the Chairman of the company and CEO Mr. Rohit Pawar devotedly worked with the farm-to-fork model with the basic principle of ‘Linking the Basics’, Baramati Agro has been working to improve the lives of farmers and provide a sense of fulfilment to its consumers. The success remains consistent when a company always remember why it started.
