@ganeshram Could you let me know some of the services that have not been added to the Directory and I will add them by next week. Could you collate this in the format I had shared earlier?

Thank you! Most happy to connect. Reaching out over a personal message for that.

Hi All,

Glad to be here.
Representing Novel Industries, manufacturer of Novel Coconut Oil, is working on a process innovation for the manufacturing of coconut oil. We have been outsourcing our manufacturing of coconut oil to nearby mills that can produce in bulk but using copra- the traditional way.
This new process of manufacturing is by grating the coconut, then drying it and then milling, that’s it. Currently at development stage, after proper implementation, I would like to make this process the new normal of manufacturing coconut oil.
Apart from the fact that we can have a product of higher quality and no preservative requirement, this new method will revamp the entire coconut industry of Kerala.
After venturing into this business after completion of my BBA, I realized that the copra’s used for manufacturing of coconut oil was sourced from Tamil Nadu rather than Kerala, a state named after coconuts. The problem with copra’s from Tamil Nadu, apart from the business perspective and cheaper copra’s is the addition of sulphur for preserving this copra for more time and after milling them, the chances of having the same preservative in the coconut oil is high.
The reason for the entire coconut farming shifting to Tamil Nadu is because of the climatic condition of Kerala.
This qualifies as a sustainable business model and impact the society, happy to connect.

Good Morning All,

I have been trying to post this content from a long time and finally remembered about it today and also my keen interest in the domain of coconuts, its role in sustainability is something which we all forget all the time.

Kindly add this company to your directory,

Interesting…I hope so.

Thank you for creating such an extensive list. I want to suggest UTMT (under the mango tree) to be added to products. UTMT society ( trains farmers in indigenous beekeeping across India. They procure honey from these farmers and sell it on their platform online.

Hello! Here’s introducing A Little More Conservation (ALMC):

ALMC curates conservation-focused NGOs in the country, to increase awareness of their work amongst the general public. Website visitors can choose to donate or volunteer with an NGO or one of their enlisted projects.
