Our Story

This years of practical experience at the field level, farmer level and whole supply chain stakeholder level, has led to formation of this entity KSEPL, with a broad vision to build ecosystem for a truly global level value chain platform focused on safe and sustainable spices/ingredients, working on one commodity at a time which is being Turmeric for the coming two crop cycles.

Genesis of KSEPL started when 3 founders met at an IIM Ahmedabad agri event . Mail-exchanges and continuous brainstorming sessions started on a voluntary basis since then, on how to solve this problem. and other supply chain problems.

The core problem of addressing contamination, adulteration, post harvest quality management and doing sustainable farmgate level sourcing was the backbone of KSEPL formation.

Deep-dive study, followed by various stakeholder consultations such as farmers, aggregators processing companies, warehousing companies, quality inspections agencies and logistics service providers was done over a period of 2 years.

One of the key issue  we came across was of Economically motivated adulteration (EMA) of a food for financial advantage, lack of knowledge about GAP, MRL, IPM and Organic Cultivation Methods, Post-harvest Management, Lack of awareness of Safe Storage Practices.

 

  1. Pesticides Residues risk and management
  2. Identification and removal of harmful contaminants (especially microbiological contaminants), in the supply chain
  3. Aflatoxin risk mitigation & framework
  4. Development of framework for traceability and implementation.
