What we believe in

Sugar sector holds immense potential in providing food & energy security for the country which is going to be one of the most important developmental prerequisites in next 5-10 years. This potential can only be realized with the right mix of regulations, connect with the farmers, modernization and professionalization of the industry. We are working towards making this happen.

About our sugar business

Our foray into sugar business was made in mid-Nineties and first unit of 2500 TCD was set up at Village Ramgarh in Sitapur district of U.P. in 1994. During 2006-07, company embarked on a major growth path by setting up two Greenfield plants at Jawaharpur (Dist. Sitapur, U.P.) and Nigohi (Dist. Shahjahanpur, U.P.) and expanding existing facilities at Ramgarh unit.  The total cane crushing capacity of the company is now 22500 TCD which makes us one of the leading sugar producers in the country.  We are now a fully integrated player with 79 MW of cogeneration capacity & a distillery of 80 KLPD.  We also have facilities for processing of raw sugar.

These state-of-the-art facilities serve as a role model for the industry and have achieved excellence in plant operational metrics and also have a technological leadership position in the industry.  We have robust quality systems and have also embarked upon 5S & TPM initiatives to create world-class systems & processes.

Due to this emphasis on world class systems, we produce sugar of high quality which has found wide acceptance in markets in U.P. & eastern India and institutional buyers such as Pepsi, Coke, Britannia, Bharati Wal-Mart, Parle etc. who have stringent quality norms.

The team has taken a number of initiatives to drive sustainable growth, lasting competitive advantage & efficiencies in all aspects of operations. It has also taken on a proactive role at industry level and has been instrumental in driving many policy & regulatory changes in the sugar and renewable energy sector.

Sustainable development

This is our guiding principal in the sugar business driving our vision, strategy and actions.

We continue contributing to income & employment creation opportunities in the local economy, infrastructure development, promotion of sustainable farming techniques, improvement of sugarcane yields, propagation of higher recovery sugarcane varieties etc. For improving service delivery to farmers we have leveraged technology - IVRS, SMS based information dissemination systems, Hand-held Terminals at cane purchasing centers and GPS devices for cane survey being a few of these.

We are also credited with pioneering achievements in registration of our cogeneration power projects under CDM (Clean Development Mechanism). All our plants are registered under this mechanism and are helping in global efforts to mitigate impact of greenhouse gas emissions. We produce ethanol which is a green fuel from the sustainable molasses route. From the distillery waste, we produce bio-compost which is organic manure.

At the plant level the constant focus is on energy conservation and energy efficient operations. A bio-methanation plant is being installed at the distillery for energy generation from distillery waste. Water re-use & recycling to minimize fresh water usage is a constant focus area.
