Lots Wholesale Solutions, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Siam Makro, addressed over 1,500 farmers at the opportunities in the food processing sector workshop facilitated by the ministry of food processing industries (MoFPI) in Bhatinda. The focus of this workshop was to provide the farmers a platform to interact with industry leaders to get their insights on procurement models and practices for backward integration.

Farmers interacted with the Lots Wholesale Solutions team and learnt about the company’s legacy of having worked with local farmers in Thailand. Guided by the concept of Local Love, the team reiterated its commitment to sourcing fresh produce from the local farming community and share know-how on packing and storage so that farmers can reduce wastage and boost incomes. The company also has plans to further support the community by opening cold storage chains as well as distribution centres that would feed its stores in northern India.

Talking about the workshop, Tanit Chearavanont, managing director, Lots Wholesale Solutions, said, “The CP in CP Group stands for Charoen Pokphand, which literally means prosperity in agriculture and this is our clear motto.”

“In Thailand, our parent company, Siam Makro, has been able to create several success stories by working with small and medium farmers. Today some of them are even international exporters of fresh produce,” he added.

“In India too, we would like to nurture such success stories. I am confident that together with MoFPI and farming communities across the country, we will achieve this,” said Chearavanont.

Lots Wholesale Solutions recently announced about their entry into the Indian retail wholesale market. The company will bring specially curated assortments for each of its micro catchments to attract business-to-business (B2B) consumers and stakeholders like traders, resellers, hotels, restaurants, caterers, food based start-ups, farmers, corporates and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Additionally, exhaustive food safety training, quality control, customised last-mile delivery, localised sourcing of food products, credit facilities to members and suppliers, transparent pricing at all touch points and leveraging technology and innovation at all levels will be facilitated by the organisation.
