In a country like India where post-harvest losses are pegged at 10%, SLCM has been instrumental in devising technology enabled solution that has cut post-harvest losses to 0.5% irrespective of infrastructure, crop or geographic location. This has been clearly demonstrated by SLCM Group and validated by the detailed study of FICCI – Partnership to Scale New Heights: India-US Collaboration in Agriculture, dated March, 2015.
SLCM continuously follows the industry best practices to upgrade the processes in warehousing domain. In the first year of its operation, SLCM brought "Bar Coded" storage receipts in practice that eliminated the risk of ‘Fraud’ in terms of fake storage receipts.
SLCM has devised an SOP which amalgamates technology with agriculture domain expertise and allows the company to operate any warehouse agnostic of infrastructure, location, weather condition across any kind of agriculture commodity. The company has applied for patenting this scientific technology of storage under the name of “AGRI REACH”* on December 2013 (*Patent Pending Patent Pending). SLCM will soon offer scientific support to agricultural economies of the new developing nations in ASEAN and African region. With this view, SLCM has started its operations in Myanmar.
