Agri-Tech FAARMs sets-up a national distribution channel for SMEs

The start-up aims to help SMEs in seed and livestock feed producers in North India.

Agritech start-up ‘Faarms’ from factory to farm is aiding small and medium-scale seed and livestock feed producers in North India in expanding their distribution channels across the country with the company signing agreements with around 50 SMEs.

The company is partnering with small-scale seed and fertiliser businesses to market their products to farmers outside of their immediate states via their bilingual app ‘Faarms’ that connects small-scale manufacturers (SMEs) of seed, feed, and mechanical tools to sell their products and build their businesses.

The company has allowed brands that were previously only available in a few districts to reach out to a bigger network of farmers in more than seven states across Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and MP and is currently connected to 8 million farmers in 33,000 villages

FAARMS co-founders Taranbir Singh and Alok Duggal said, “SME and MSME is the backbone of Indian economy and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to assist the small and medium scale manufacturers in expanding their distribution channel across the country. We are on an aggressive PAN India expansion mode and our ties with SMEs will only get stronger as we take along the local seed and livestock manufacturers to a national level.”

The company recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC), under which the company will have access to 422 warehouses across India, allowing it to deliver seeds, agrochemicals, bio-fertilizers, poultry and cattle feed to farmers in the interiors of various states on time.
