Indian herbal extract manufacturer Olive Lifesciences tied up with an IT company to have a network platform that has a built-in traceability system to track the farm produce and consignment status to ensure quality and safety of cultivated herbs.
“This would enable us to bring affordable state-of-the-art technology in agriculture, remotely monitor farms, make every farmer adopt the best global agricultural practices and make every crop traceable so that harvested crops meet global quality standards,” said Dr. Shiv, vice president of Olive Lifesciences.
“As one of the largest cultivator of herbs like coleus, marigold and turmeric, we believe deeply in having a positive effect on our earth and the global community and we create an ethical and mutually beneficial business association that also allows for improving the grower community's social conditions and environment—while providing the highest quality products to our customers,” said Anzar, managing director for Olive. “Our 15,000 acres with more than 5,000 farmers across four states in India stands testimony to our special bond and relationship, which has given us necessary foundation to build a more sustainable, responsible company.”
Successively in 2011 and 2012, Olive Lifesciences received export excellence award from PHARMEXCIL, Export Promotion Council from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, government of India and also received an award from George Washington University, USA, for outstanding contribution in the field of conservation, cultivation and utilization of medicinal plants.
