Thanks to the dedication, agility and tenacity of our team, we have been able to significantly outperform the guidance given at the start of the year, with nearly every region seeing double-digit growth.

“FY22 was a year of challenging macro-environment, input cost inflationary pressures and supply chain disruptions and we chose to prudently invest towards ensuring reliable growth going forward,” company CEO Jai Shroff said.

Guided by its OpenAg purpose to create sustainable growth for all, UPl achieved important milestones in its mission to build a network that ‘reimagines sustainability’ for the entire agricultural industry, he added.
