For well over 60 years, we were Excel Industries Limited. We produced chemicals that helped reap richer rewards for farmers across India. As we grew closer to them, we understood the criticality of our products to their livelihood. We were more than just a chemicals provider. They looked to us for guidance and confidence. We learnt that when a farmer took our advice, he placed not only his crop in our hands, but also the future of his family. This further strengthened our commitment to giving him the best products and the best crop production technology.This commitment and focus gave birth to Excel Crop Care Limited - a company which began with 3 manufacturing plants; over 1200 dedicated employees; a range of market-leading brands; a distribution network of 40000 dealers; a customer base running into millions; and a turnover exceeding Rs.6400 million. Not to mention the accumulated wisdom of 6 decades. With Excel Crop Care, we are now propagating a more scientific approach to agriculture, which will do away with wasteful practices and lead to better crop yields with lesser expenses.

In this connection, we have been certified as SA 8000: 2001 Company. Our company has been awarded this certificate by TUV SUD Group, for establishing and applying a Social Accountability Management System for Manufacturing and Supplying of Agro Chemicals and Industrial Chemicals. The SA 8000 standard is an auditable certification standard based on international workplace norms of International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The different elements of this standard are: no child labour, no forced labour, proper health and safety, freedom of association and right to collective bargaining, no discrimination, cordial discipline, amicable working hours, appropriate compensation, good management systems. It is a matter of pride that ours is the first such company in the Agrochemical Sector in India, to comply by these standards and receive this certificate.

These have been the values by which the foundation of the company was laid. We are happy that 60 years later too, we have carried forward those ideals and have been recognized for that.
