The Department of Horticulture, Government of Karnataka has been nurturing over 99 FPOs (formed as per SFAC guidelines) across Karnataka during the past three years. Like-wise, NABARD has supported formation of over 200 FPOs in Karnataka. Besides there are crop-specific farmer organisations and associations in Karnataka.
Most of the FPOs have started business activities (Inputs, animal feed and output business) and have three years of track record. However, many FPOs are struggling to meet their expenses even with large volume of transactions. There are many reasons for that. Mainly, most of them are only using their own capital and have not got access to bank finance yet. Second, most of them have only started input business and are not geared up to do output-based business.
The solution lies in enabling FPOs to establish linkages with input and service providers as well as buyers in the market. Besides, FPOs should be provided with knowledge of compliance and conformance so that they get access to formal credit sources from banks and government sponsored financial institutions such as NABKISAN.
FPO Buyer Seller Meet, initiated by the department of horticulture, Government of Karnataka and organised by Foretell Business Solutions Private Limited, proposes to achieve the above-mentioned objective.
During inaugural edition of FPO buyer seller meet on 12-13 July 2018 at Jnana Jyoti Auditorium, Bangalore, Over 650 people from 200+ FPOs, 5 sponsors, 15+ speakers, 30+ exhibition stalls, 20+ financial institutions, 30+ buyers gathered at Jnana Jyoti Auditorium, Central College Campus to receive and listen to our honourable Horticulture Minister, Govt. of Karnataka Shri M.C.Managuli at the inauguration function. The honourable minister expressed happiness over development in Karnataka FPOs and recommended similar programmes across the state, so that the message reaches more farmers.
Close to 500 - 600 decision makers from FPOs (president and CEOs from over 300 FPOs) are expected to come for the gathering over the two-day period. Together these would represent 2 lakh farmers or about 3 lakh acres of cultivation from across Karnataka. Total value of the produce would be around Rs. 1500 cr and the value of inputs would be around Rs. 400 to Rs. 500 cr. Thus, the BSM presents a very big and focussed opportunity for input suppliers, banks, service providers and buyers of the output.
