Based in the UPSIDC industrial area of Kanpur, stands HL Agro’s fully automated, ISO 22000:2005 certified sesame processing plant. Spread over a vast area of 6000 sq. metres, the plant houses customized and fine-tuned state-of-the-art machinery, including Swiss-based machinery from Buhler enabled with cutting-edge technology.
At the plant, the output premium quality goes through different quality-controlled stages depending on the type of sesame seeds being manufactured. Hulled sesame goes through three stages: Cleaning, Hulling and finally sorting. While Natural Sesame goes through the Cleaning and Sorting stage. Enabled by the best technology, the annual production capacity of the sesame processing plant is 22,000 MT.
Food Safety and R&D
HL Agro has maintained one of the top positions in the market because we value the fact that we have been persistently delivering premium quality since our inception. To ensure the premium quality of the products that we deliver in bulk, we have been utilizing the services of independent testing agencies such as SGS.
HL Agro is currently in the process of setting up an in-house laboratory for physical, chemical and microbiological testing to enhance continuous R&D and so that we can keep conducting tests towards further improving and delivering better quality with time.
Being one of the top sesame exporters in India is a position of responsibility. We make sure that our activities are socially responsible and in that try to ensure that the impact our sesame processing plant has on nature is minimum. Thus, we have in place:
- Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP)
Processing of sesame seeds from raw material requires large volumes of high-grade water. And the wastewater is often consisting high volumes of biochemical oxygen demand and suspended solids. Thus, we have set up an ETP to treat the effluents that are generated from the whole process.
- Green Zones
Approximately 1500 sq. m. area of the total factory area is fully dedicated to maintaining a green zone.
- Wastage Management
Waste produced from our factory, i.e., the rejected seeds are not left out, they are continuously sold back in the market in the form of hay, fodder etc.
