Agriculture

Wingreens has a stand-out business model: food processing on the farm. Its revenues are soaring, but MNCs could spoil the party.

Or that there is an opportunity for a common product closer home — tea, or spices —
problem to solve is still that of the farmer. “I am very worried about the bull and male calves. My heart bleeds for them. This is a fundamental problem in dairy and it has gotten worse. My husband tells me I’m going cuckoo!” But then again, didn’t it all start with farming? ( Graphics by Ankita Mehrotra)
