Committed to Social Responsibilities
The success of any herbal based product is dependent on the ready availability of high quality medicinal herbs. Keeping this in mind, we at Olive Lifesciences have ventured into the area of contract farming. This activity of ours is very fulfilling in two ways- in addition to ensuring the availability of quality raw materials, this also helps us to give back to the society as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility to the most deserving class of people in our society., our farmers.
Olive Lifesciences lends a helping hand to the families of the farmers in educating their children. We aim in developing a better nation with smart and educated generation.
We have directly engaged over 5,000 farmers in South India in the cultivation of medicinal plants spread over an area of more than 10,000 acres. This activity of ours has resulted in numerous benefits to the farmer community, leading to better income levels for the farmers and thereby improving the standard and quality of living. Some of the other benefits accruing out of this activity are:
We enter into a direct buy back agreement with farmers to ensure better returns to them, without the intervention of middle man or an agent. We do this by advancing money to the farmers right from the onset of the agreement and also disburse payments at periodic intervals to take care of all their needs. We provide the farmers with high quality seeds, bio fertilizers and bio pesticides in addition to educating them about Good Agricultural Practices. This ensures optimum yield from the agricultural land henceforth increasing the farmer’s earnings.
Our agreement with the farmers assures them a fixed income, thereby bringing greater stability in their income levels. We encourage the use of bio pesticides and bio fertilizers to ensure that the soil integrity is preserved for sustainable farming operations. This in turn ensures that during the period of inactivity, where the farmers are unable to cultivate his land due to indiscriminate usage of chemical pesticides is avoided, thereby, safeguarding the interest of the farmer.
Better remuneration and assured incomes have directly resulted in the overall improvement in the quality of life of the farmers and their families too. Their children are able to attend school regularly and all their health related requirements are being taken care. We conduct medical camps for the farmers and their families, in addition to their routine illness being treated. They are also given basic knowledge about cleanliness, hygiene and other preventive methods.
