Celebrating 25 Years of Serving the Farming Community at SeedWorks
“At SeedWorks, this year is even more significant because of the milestone we achieved as an organization. Happy to share with you that we have completed 25 years in the service of the farming community.
Founded in 1998, we evolved from being a research-oriented entity to an organization that continues to align with the expectations of various stakeholders across the value chain. Our commitment to various focus areas has strengthened over these years whether it is driving our integrated ESG approach, bettering people practices and continued investment in cutting edge plant breeding technologies to deliver superior seed solutions to the farmers in a sustainable manner. Over these years, we have been achieving financial results in terms of sustainable growth in revenues and profitability, adhering to the highest levels of governance and compliance. While we have been making inroads in being relevant with changing times, we have continued to deepen our interest in research and technological innovation, making way for industry leading products in rice, cotton, tomatoes, hot peppers, cucurbits and making strides in millet and mustard along with expansion into new geographies across Asia and Africa. We continue to participate in the digital revolution by developing digital applications in collaboration with various stakeholders helping the company internally to bring speed to the market, optimizing costs and improving revenue while helping the farmers in a real time basis to maximize their productivity. We have also leveraged social media to augment our connection to the farming community in providing solutions and improving our brand visibility in the larger context.
My heartfelt gratitude and thanks to each one of you who has supported us throughout this growth story named SeedWorks – our founders, investors: True North, GEF Capital Partners and Wand Partners, Board of Directors, past and present employees, grower farmers, customers, channel partners, business partners, bankers, auditors, attorneys, industry bodies and all other key stakeholders.
As we prepare ourselves for more challenges and milestones, these words have a profound influence on me which I would like to share – “modern organizations are for perpetuity irrespective of changes, the show will go on until the impetus is on stronger processes, better collaboration and innovation in all spheres of business.” We thank you for your partnership all through these years and look forward to a fruitful association in the years to come.”
