HarvestPlus and Greenday Kisan Ki Dukan launch first women-led Agri Input franchisee store

The franchisee store aiming to create sustainable, women-led agribusinesses that prioritise community health and economic independence.

 In a significant step towards empowering women in agriculture and promoting nutritional security, India’s first women-led Agri Input franchisee store, a collaborative effort between Greenday Kisan Ki Dukan and HarvestPlus Solutions India, was inaugurated in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh. The groundbreaking franchise was launched by Navneet Kaur, a local farmer’s daughter with a strong academic background in chemistry and biology, embodying the spirit of self-reliance and community service.

The store’s opening was marked by a ceremony attended by Ravinder Grover, Global Business Manager at HarvestPlus Solutions, alongside the dedicated team from Greenday, local farmers, gram Pradhans, and members of the community. The event highlighted the critical importance of enhancing nutrition through advanced agricultural practices, focusing on the use of biofortified crops to combat malnutrition and build a healthier future.

Navneet Kaur, the pioneering franchisee, shared her vision, stating, “Taking on this franchise allows me to blend my scientific background with my commitment to my community. It’s more than a business; it’s an opportunity to make a tangible difference in people’s lives by increasing access to nutritious foods.”

“We are proud to empower women in agriculture and promote nutritional security through this initiative. This marks a pivotal moment in enhancing nutrition through advanced agricultural practices, with a focus on using biofortified crops to combat malnutrition and pave the way for a healthier future for all,” said Ravinder Grover, Global Business Manager, HarvestPlus Solutions.

“Empowering communities through innovation and nutrition is our mission; today marks a milestone in that journey,” stated Prateek Rastogi, CEO, Greenday

The Greenday Kisan Ki Dukan and HarvestPlus Solutions India collaboration represents a model for future agricultural retail, combining the latest in biofortification research with grassroots empowerment and education. This franchisee store in Khairabad is the first of many planned outlets aiming to create sustainable, women-led agribusinesses that prioritize community health and economic independence.

As we celebrate the launch of this pioneering initiative, we look forward to witnessing its positive impact on local farming practices, nutritional awareness, and the empowerment of women in the agricultural sector.
