Bidar: In his 79th ‘Mann Ki Baat’ address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lauded the Hulsoor Millet Producer Company, which sells value-added products of millets in Hulsoor Town of the District.

“Nowadays there is a huge demand for millets. People are slowly consuming the grains which are more emphasised on improving health. Thus, the Government is also encouraging farmers to sow millets. The Mahila Kisan Millet Producer Company has been successful in selling the same millet-based products. This has increased the income of farmers,” Modi lauded.

At Processing Unit of Millet Producer Company in Bidar there are 308 women shareholders. The shareholders also include 63 small farmers and 30 women farmers. The farmers buy the grown millet, convert it into flours, process it and sell it. The company was launched on March 2, 2021 in Hulasur Town adjoining Maharashtra, Border Taluk of the District. In all 9 varieties of millet products are being sold. They are selling products like navane, ragi, saave, baraga and bajra. Ragi flour, jowar flour, bajra flour are made and sold too.

These millets are transported to Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Basavakalyan for sale. The company, which was started two years ago, has a turnover of lakhs of rupees annually.
