Ishwarbhai Patel, Chairman & CEO, Super Crop Safe, said, "We are very happy to announce the results of the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. Due to a month's delay in monsoon, the season has shifted ahead. Although the industry performance has not been impressive, we at Super Crop have been able to achieve stable numbers. We are positive for giving good results in the coming two quarters because of well penetrated monsoon, in the states where we are present.
We are now reaping benefits from the brand building activities, which we carried out in the last fiscal year, for our two bio fertilizers (Super gold & TriNetra). Over the years, we have been introducing new high margin, high demand products to the market, as a result of which Super Crop now boasts of 123 products in its collection, including the 5 new ones launched in this quarter. Out of the 5 new products, 4 are insecticides and one is a weedicide. We are willing to continue innovating and leveraging our robust R&D to dominate the market and improve our performance. We are constantly increasing the number of our distributors and aim to double it by next year.
Nutraceutical segment is a blooming market in India, with everybody focusing on their health. This segment includes high demand and high margin products, ultimately the demand for nutraceutical segment will be very high in coming years. Spirulina has received all the permissions related to manufacturing and marketing. A Spirulina based Energy drink and few other products, which are in the final stage of R&D, will help us to enter the new market segment.
The company has applied for the acquisition of a 10,000 sq. mt. plot, which will be used for the setting up of a technical grade plant. As soon as we receive the permission, we will start the plant development work. At present, company holds the 10 technical grade licenses.
