SLCM has been acknowledged with this award for their innovative and scientific commodity handling through AGRI REACH thereby promoting an effective and futuristic supply chain and logistics solutions in the agri eco-system.
The patent pending technology “AGRI REACH” can reduce post-harvest losses which are presently at 10% annually to just 0.5% irrespective of infrastructure, crop or geographic location of the crop.
This has been duly accredited in a study conducted by FICCI as well. Moreover, to prove its scalability in international avenues the Group forayed into Myanmar in April 2014 and as of today SLCM Ltd. Myanmar is an independent entity successfully curtailing the enormous post harvest losses ranging from 20-25% in that country.
