We are a biorefining company that produces sugar, other foods, biofuels, chemicals, power, compost, waxes, and related products, using sugarcane as the primary feedstock. Our aim is to engage in research and innovate by continuously making new products and entering new markets in order to derive the maximum value from our feedstock. Our research areas include sustainable farming, transformation of biomass (chemical, mechanical and biological), product development, and process optimization. Founded in 1939, we have been pioneers in the growing, processing, and utilization of biomass to make a wide variety of products.
We are now working on the next generation bagasse-based biorefinery and also the biotransformation of sugar to biopolymers.
We work closely with over 20,000 farmers in over 200 villages, applying scientific, agricultural and technological solutions to our cane development program. In close collaboration with K. J. Somaiya Institute of Applied Agricultural Research (KIAAR) at Sameerwadi, our scientists and agriculturists help farmers employ best practices that enable environmental and financial sustainability over the short and the long term.
We manufacture, pack, and distribute sugar to retail, industrial and export customers. Launched in October 2014, Jivana, our retail brand, aims to provide good quality foods to Indian homes whilst uplifting lives of the farmers who nurture these products from the start. All Jivana products are responsibly grown and harvested.
