aardraa serves community Better!
aardraa is a social business which provides natural organic Himalayan foods grown in the Central Himalayan terrain amidst pure air, water and soil of Kumaon, Uttarakhand. The crops are grown by the hill farmers in their small and marginal farms consciously with their traditional methods and a whole lot of love. Our conscious consumers buy these foods at fair pricesby paying a premium which goes into the communal funds of aardraa trust.
aardraa trust is a developmental trust formed and run by these farmers for their community development work in the villages. Trust has its partnership with aardraa, making them our shareholders, according to which aardraa share its profit with the trust. Developmental work is decided by the community/trust members themselves according to their needs unlike other developmental work.
This is how the community, nay all the partners get served better! Learn More
