AVT Group started its operations in agriculture, ever since we have not looked back. Our success stories in plantations of Tea, Coffee, Vanilla and our Invitro plant propagation techniques through biotechnology are a testimony of our commitment to the agricultural sectors. AVT adopted contract farming model to meet the twin objective of maximizing net farm returns to farmers and ensuring quality produce at optimum price. This led to a win-win relation between AVT Natural and our farmer friends. We have systems and controls to implement GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) that assures quality right from seed to the finished product and ensure good net farm returns to the farmers. The very fact that “AVT Natural” Brand is the top of the mind recall among our customers when it comes to traceability, consistency, food safety etc, reinforces our claim. The main focus of Contract farming model are:
- Higher yields
- Lower costs
- More active ingredient content,
- Consistent quality
AVT Natural covers the entire gamut of Supply Chain by taking care of each and every link of the supply chain. We collaborate with Financial Institutions and Input Suppliers to deliver quality inputs at the right time like seeds, Fertilizers, Plant protection chemicals, Sprayers etc. We help our farmer friends by arranging collection of their produce right at their door steps with weekly Cash Payment. Middlemen are totally avoided in our system to ensure farmers a legitimate share of the final value of their produce.
We believe in the adage “Change is Constant”, which has shifted our focus from “Farm to Fork” to “Seed to Fork” to move ahead of time. Our R&D Team focuses on seed development that maximizes the net farm returns. We do work in collaboration with global leaders like Ball Helix, Illinois , USA in seed development to suit local agro-climatic conditions.
Our successful Contract Farming Model has been implemented at five different agro climatic locations in India and has now crossed the sea to China . This de-risks the raw material supply from the impact of climatic changes and vagaries of nature.
Our strength in agriculture, backward integration,seed development programmes,etc can be replicated for other crops also.
AVT Natural looks forward in joining hands with organizations which believes in quality at source, traceability, food safety etc. AVT can offer a fully integrated project with the concept of “Seed to Fork”.
