In the backdrop of excessive wastage and carbon foot print from ripen fruits in 2005, our director Ashok Annam was working in an agricultural products company. He had thought of bringing dehydrated fruits to India and to the common people where all dehydrated fruits can be easily accessible in all seasons of the year with best quality and affordable price.
In the market, it’s been observed the inorganic quality dehydrated fruits have been sold and are not reachable for common man. As we knew the dehydrated fruits have good health benefits, which are rich in nutrients, fibre, iron, etc. and wastage of the fruits will be nullified and easily stored and preserved. This sowed the seeds for us at SmartWays. With a group of inspired colleagues, we set out on a lifelong journey of passion and commitment. We named our service BERRY BASKET. Delving into the ancient Upanishads of India and sourcing from the Rig Veda, we drew upon the primary elements of nature. “Tvam Bhumir Apo Analo Anilo Nabha” – You alone are Earth, Water, Fire. Air and Ether is the blend of all basis elements that compose wholesome food.
SmartWays took small steps starting in 2016 with the focus on exploring the best quality organic fruits in the world, which are dehydrated in hygienic conditions. SmartWays had tied with reputed dehydrated fruits manufacturers in Thailand, US & European countries which acquires fruits from best organic farms, industries. SmartWays became the first ever dehydrated fruits importer in South India with an aggregated import of more than 100 tons of dehydrated fruits per year.
