Terra Greens Organic is an organic food company started by Terrafirma Projects Pvt. Ltd; a company based in Hyderabad, India. The company also has the distinction of being led by women entrepreneurs who firmly believe in health and ecologically balanced farming practices, or simply, organic farming.
Terra Firma Projects, a Hyderabad-based start-up focussed on organic food, is looking to scale up by expanding the product range as well as getting into newer markets.
At the launch of Quinoa upma mix (with dehydrated vegetables), its eighth organic ready-to-cook processed product, executive director and CEO Likitha Bhanu said Terra Greens range of products are available in 300 stores across 16 States.
Talking further about Terra Greens, her brain child, Likitha says the company goes through immense amount of pain to produce the organic crop. “We have gathered around 2000 farmers from the states of Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra and train them different developing techniques. Despite that fact that there are a lot of bio fertilizers available, we chose to make our own worming compost and organic manure. We also perform random checks at frequent intervals to test for pesticide residues,” she informs.
Terra Greens produces about 92 staple products and a line of eight ready to cook products. They are also working on reviving ancient grains and making products that are ready to cook to popularise them. All packaging happens on the farm itself. They are a lean team of 25 and operate all across India, with their products being found in 500 stores.
