Chairman, Sahyadri Agro Retails Ltd & Sahyadri Farmers Producer Company Ltd.
Chairman and Managing Director of SFPCL ( Sahyadri Farmers producer co ltd) , Mr. Vilas Shinde completed his post graduation in Agril Engineering from MPKV,Rahuri. He comes from a very humble & marginal farming family from Adgaon village, near Nashik.
He could have got an elite high profile job with any of the leading corporate houses at that time with his strong academic background and spark.
However, Mr. Vilas had an aspiration to become a successful Agril Entrepreneur with a vision to change the pessimistic, discouraging Agriculture and rural system in india.
Despite of poor capital availability and resources in the initial phase, he continued to pursue his mission. First of all, undertook transformation of his own family agriculture land into technologically upgraded advanced farms. Considering a need for a subsidiary activity, he started a Dairy business which was operated for a very short span and required to shut down due to lack of capital and resources.
