The gluten-free whole grains have found their way back to our kitchens! Yes, the millets are back with a bang. Did you know that the staple food of ancient India was the Millet?
Do you know that the Foxtail millet, Finger millet, Sorghum millet and the Pearl millet are all power packed with nutrition? And they have been improvised to find their way through in various Indian delicacies like the Dosa, Porridge, Upma and Idli.
The United Nationcs General Assembly at its 75th session declared 2023 as the International Year of Millets. Millets can grow on arid lands with minimal inputs and are climate resilient crops. The year hopes to see sustainable production of millets providing an opportunity for both producers and consumers.

Svojas needs to assure Food quality to Consumers

Svojas needs to assure consumers of the safety and quality of their products. Ethical sourcing of raw materials and product transparency needs to be validated to ensure authenticity of the end product.
As Svojas believes in promoting chemical free agriculture, there is a need to track sustainable practices in the product supply chain and ensure the quality and safety of the product.
Svojas has a number of products with many processes. The product inventory, manufacturing and packaging activities need to be streamlined to ensure efficient supply chain management
