A 100-acre devoted market house built-in with world-class infrastructure, providers from banking to storage, processing, and packaging below one roof, choices for offline and on-line buying and selling, legalisation of discipline commerce, and possession of farmers. These are a number of the deliberate options of the non-public agriculture market initiated by Sahyadri Farmer Producer Firm (FPC).  

The FPC has bagged a license, the primary within the nation, to arrange a non-public agricultural mandi (market) at Dindori, in Nashik district. The market will come up over the subsequent three months at a price of ₹25 crore. 

“We’re guaranteeing that world-class infrastructure is ready up at our mandi in Nashik, the place farmers may have a say in buying and selling. Public sale and storage amenities are being readied. About 90 per cent of infrastructure already exists. Now we have a 4,000-tonne storage capability for grapes and raisins. Storage of one other 20,000 tonnes is preparing. We’re specializing in horticulture commodities,” Sahyadri FPC MD Vilas Shinde advised BusinessLine

On-line, offline buying and selling 

Horticulture commerce primarily takes place on the fields and farmers usually complain that merchants go lacking with out paying totally.

“Now, all processes in such discipline trades can be documented. Additionally, farmers can retailer their produce at our market. Conventional APMCs [agricultural produce market committees] have established monopolies. Right here there can be no monopoly as farmers are the homeowners of the market,” mentioned Shinde. 

Sahyadri FPC has readied a particular software program for on-line buying and selling. “We wish to present an end-to-end ecosystem to our members. There’s a enormous home market obtainable for our farmers, however there isn’t any advertising and marketing system. The present advertising and marketing system just isn’t enough,” Shinde added.

Nashik farmers say grapes by no means come to APMCs for buying and selling, and Sahyadri FPC gives them a possibility to carry their produce to its market. Farmers have been complaining that the raisin markets in Tasgaon and Pimpalgaon are dominated by just a few teams, forcing farmers to rely on them for a greater value. Now, they hope to discover a higher answer on the Sahyadri APMC.  

Competing with high quality 

“Personal markets will set off competitors. Farmers are going to profit. FPC market will pose a problem to conventional APMCs. FPCs are crop- and member-specific and can think about bringing their produce into the system. Competitors is a should for bettering the market system,” mentioned Shinde.
