Making Simple Better is integral to how we do business.
It is an agribusiness that has evolved from focusing on palm plantation to becoming an edible oil refining company, with interests in planting, crushing, refining and retailing palm oil.
Navabharat was a pioneer in partnering with the state government of Andhra Pradesh to introduce oil palm for local cultivation. The company successfully convinced farmers in the West Godavari district to grow the crop, which has a high yield but is not expensive to produce.
Navabharat was the first private company to breed oil palm seeds. Our nursery continues to receive germinated sprouts which are nurtured to produce plants for cultivation – these are then supplied to local farmers.
Navabharat was allotted 9 mandals to develop palm oil cultivation:
