On being conferred with the Lifetime Achievement Award, Mr. Dhruv M.

The journey of the Sugar industry has been exciting, and we are proud to be one of the key enablers of the socio-economic development in the country. Over the years, the industry has evolved from just sugar production to now being a major contributor towards the nation’s sustainability goals through bio-fuels such as fuel ethanol. The Sugar industry is committed to support the farmers community, Government’s initiatives and build a strong inclusive growth ecosystem. And we believe the industry will be at the forefront for many more initiatives in the years to come as the Government aims for more ‘waste to wealth schemes to promote a circular economy.”
