Agro-based raw materialsFruits, Vegetables, and spices
Head QuatersHarrison Newyork, America
Revenue67,161 Million USD

Now let me tell you small rough calculation…

Ideally Lays’ India will buy potatoes directly from the farmer at a wholesale price of 6Rs/1Kg (approximate value).

Lays Potato chips packet

Total weight of the 5 Rs Lay’s chips packet is 30grams, whereas the chips alone way for 27grams ( 23g carbohydrate CH2O, 2g fat, 2g sugar)

Therefore they can create an 18 chips packet from that 1kg. Whereas 1 packet is sold for 5 Rs…

Now, profit margin according to the example is…

[5 (selling price)] – [6/18 +1 (packing and masala cost per pack)] = 3.66 Rs appx. profit per packet.

Therefore, profit is about 70% per packet (appx). That is the potential of agro-based businesses. You can also plan to start your own agro-based businesses and earn a lot of money.

Benefits of Agro-based Industries to the Indian country

Everyday many startups rise and fall in India. But the intention behind all those businesses is profit profit profit. Of course, everyone needs money… but only some of them think about their country while starting a business.

Only a handful of people are really doing the business to serve the people of the nation.

Agro-based businesses are one of the kind which gives profit and also serves the Indian nation for its growth.

While reading the above examples you may notice how many farmers getting benefited from that business. Farmers need income and then only agriculture will grow in our country.

Greenply is the greatest example because it encourages cultivating forest. It is continuously taking the effort to plant trees. It also directly encourages others to cultivate timber trees.
