There are two sides to a transaction, the consumer side and the supplier side, consumer is not getting access to the best, healthiest produce possible that is fresh (“KNOW YOUR FOOD”).
On the supply side, we are not giving majority of the funds to actual growers of our food. On an average farmer just gets 20 to 30 percent of what the consumer spends and that is not enough for the farmer to be always profitable and continue to produce quality food (“KNOW YOUR FARMER”).
We are a group of active farmers, young and old. Some of our parents are still active farmers. We studied and spent a good amount of time growing up in our villages. Following the flock, we moved on to cities for education and opportunities, we studied hard and went on to work for the corporate world, within India and abroad, still keeping in touch with family and friends back home. Over the years we have seen a lot of changes all around us, but the condition of farmers has not kept up with time, this is mainly due to poor remuneration they get for their produce. We are a little tired of this same old process with layers of middlemen, Thinking Back to the Roots, wanted to do something about it, so we decided to sell our and other farmers produce directly to consumers and pass on margins to the farmers. We will work with them to put in quality procedures and make sure anything we sell will be of assured quality. We will provide means for your families to trace back your food to your farmer. We guarantee Honest food, Honest work, Honest pay, and Honest Farmers.
