Milestones in the Journey of Plant Lipids

Our Vision

Increasing urbanization coupled with the ever rising human demand is putting pressure on our environment’s ability to replenish the resources. At Plant Lipids, we are committed to reduce the dependency on non-renewable energy; we reuse and recycle what we can.

As a company focused on agriculture and farmers, our activities are directed towards services that promote a safe, healthy, affordable commodity supply for all of us. Under the IPM chili program we are training farmers on scientific sustainable farming techniques focused on sustainability.

We understand the requirement of renewable energy sources and a part of our investment is directed towards harnessing the wind energy by installing windmills in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. We are also foraying into a solar power plant in Andhra Pradesh.

Our activities are aimed for providing better education, medical aid, need based awareness programs, etc to the needy.
