He further adds, "Almost 80% of our plucking staff are women from villages in the vicinity of our farms, and we provide them pick-up & drop facilities on a daily basis. We also created a women-only sales channel to empower homemakers to earn a side income. Our focus on women empowerment and ESG compliance aligns with UN sustainability goals, gaining global traction."
