Kochi, August 24, 2015: In keeping with its mission of “Transforming Lives”, UST Global, a leading digital technology services company that provides powerful solutions for Global 1000 companies, today supported the setting up of a Onam special stall at the Kochi Infopark, where Infopark employees can buy pesticide free vegetables during this Onam season.
The stall was inaugurated today at Infopark by Sunil Balakrishnan, Global Head - Center Operations of UST Global. The initiative attempts to ensure the availability of fresh and safe-to-eat vegetables to all technology professionals working in different companies at Infopark.
The Onam special pesticide free vegetables stall will be open till August 26th, and employees can pre-book their vegetables through the website www.farmersfz.com
Sunil Balakrishnan, Global Head – Center Operations of UST Global, said “We, at UST Global, recognize this initiative by Farmersfz to promote pesticide free farming as well as provide the produce to technology professionals. This is an example for how technology can be used for the benefit of the society. Farmersfz connects farmers directly to consumers without middlemen, thereby giving farmers & consumers the maximum benefit. It also provides convenience to consumers as it reaches them after office hours”.
UST Global is supporting the event under its ‘Code for Humanity’ program which is aimed at supporting and strengthening social initiatives through technology.
Farmersfz is the brainchild of Pradeep, a 27-year-old IT professional, who came up with the idea of connecting farmers directly with professionals in Infopark with the help of an online platform. This unique initiative ensures supply of safe-to-eat vegetables from local farms in Kerala for techies to conveniently pick up after their office hours. It addresses one of the top concerns on food safety in Kerala and at the same time brings in sustainability in community farming by offering fair returns to farmers for their investment in farming.
