- Shanthi Feeds
- Mr. R. Lakshmanan, with inspiration and encouragement from his beloved father, Mr. K. Ramasamy, an employee of the animal husbandry department, Tamilnadu, started a small poultry farm as a means of self employment way back in 1988. There are no parallels what this dynamic hardworking man, dedicated to the poultry industry, could achieve in the following years by his visionary leadership and commitment to quality.
Pappampatti, the native village of Mr. R. Lakshmanan, is a dry and arid area where there is limited cultivation and the people were really struggling to make both ends meet. Therefore, giving gainful employment to the local villagers was a primary concern of the managing director when he thought of expanding the activities. Shanthi Feeds was the first to introduce integrated operations, both at the level of organizing farmers and, also, bringing in all process parameters, including the production of poultry feed, under its control. There are 4 hatchery units, 5 parent bird farms, and over 1000 commercial farms for broiler birds under the aegis ofShanthi Feeds Farm. Today, with a market share of over 25% and a production capacity of over 450000 parent chicks and birds,Shanthi Feeds Farm is poised for even greater achievements in the years to come.
