Starting from the year 2002 as Desai Cold Storage Private Limited (now as Desai Fruits & Vegetables Private Limited), DFV has pioneered the introduction of world class pre and post harvesting technologies for premium quality bananas from India. With its excellence in supply chain management from field to customer, full traceability and safety of the produce is guaranteed. The USP of the company is to deliver consistent volumes of high standardized quality. This has made it the leading Indian exporter of premium Cavendish bananas. Since its inception, DFV has invested in R&D for agricultural practices and in developing long-distance transport protocols. These initiatives have helped the Company emerge as one of the leading exporters of high quality fruits and vegetables in India.
Providing value to partners and customers alike has always been the key at DFV. In line with the long terms strategy to affirm the Company’s commitment to expand and improve services, a 49% equity stake was offered to and acquired by Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corp. Ltd., Pune, Maharashtra, in 2011. Fusing competencies and synergizing with the marketing and service-driven strengths of DFPCL will further help gain market access and expertise to become the supplier of choice for global and domestic consumers and organized retailers.
