With a vision to change the way India farms and gardens, a unique online portal Ugaoo.com, has been launched in Mumbai, today. A one-of-a-kind interactive portal, Ugaoo.com provides quality products and credible knowledge to all the avid farmers and gardeners in India.
This newly launched online store sells equipments and encourages informative discussions based on topics related to gardening and farming. Ugaoo is also going to actively promote urban farming by providing sound and credible knowledge to those who want to teach and learn. With initial focus on Mumbai and Pune, Ugaoo.com has tied up with more than 50 manufacturers and has distribution plans all acrossIndia. With a strong delivery network all across India and convenient payment options, Ugaoo plans on reaching out to the remotest corners of the nation so that no one is deprived of going green.
According to Food Agriculture Organization (FOA), India is home to 11% arable land of the world. Currently, the gardening market in India is approximately Rs. 5000 Crores, which is much lower when compared to other economies like China. This presents a huge opportunity which can be tapped to make India Greener.
Since 1885, Namdeo Umaji Agritech (India) Pvt. Ltd. played a pivotal role in agriculture as well as gardening. Now with Ugaoo.com, their newest and greenest initiative, they look to enable a greener India by way of gardening, urban farming as well as beautifying spaces for healthier living.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Siddhant Bhalinge, Founder – Ugaoo.com, says, “Ugaoo aims to deeply connect all individuals residing in urban as well as rural areas to come together and start growing for a healthier future and a greater cause towards the nation.”
Appealing to the varied tastes ranging from professional gardeners, horticulturists, architects, landscape architects, interior decorators, urban farmers, hobby gardeners, plant lovers to the rural large scale farmers of India, Ugaoo.com offers only the best for those with a passion for a healthier living.
