Our farmer partners are the backbone of our company as well as our country. They do the hard of growing the food we eat and yet rarely get the credit due to them. Original Indian Table is a partner to farmers committed to growing crops that are sustainable and suited to their local agro-climatic conditions. We ensure that atleast 30% of the final price reaches the farmers.
Since the Green Revolution in India, there has been a focus on increasing farm productivity by focusing on a selected basket of products and using conventional agricultural practices. This has led to the loss of traditional food varieties and practices and the excessive application of chemical inputs has increased costs and reduced soil productivity making farming an unviable economic activity .
Today there is a trend of farmers shifting to indigenous crop varieties to revive their soil and are struggling to sell their products beyond local markets. Parallely there’s a growing population of customers looking for healthy local food options. Original Indian Table aims to bridge this gap.
Today we are actively sourcing from 19 farmer groups spread across India of which 5 are women farmer groups.
