Esteem Bio Organic Food Processing Ltd Management Discussions.


On macroeconomic front the financial year 2014- 15 was among the most challenging years. The policy and governance environment impacted the economic scenario. Persistent inflation resulted in the regulator raising the policy rates leading to a high interest-rate environment.

All these factors contributed towards an industrial slowdown and eventually led to a moderation in GDP growth. Raising capital became more difficult and working capital cycles in most industries increased, resulting in cash flow issues across various sectors. The microfinance sector came to a standstill, owing to regulatory hurdles.

However, in the midst of these challenges, there were certain pockets and segments that continued to thrive.


Your Company being an agricultural Company seeks opportunities and making efforts to fully utilize it.


The long term objective of the Company is to remain strong player in the market with strong emphasis on product and market development.
