The delegation of 50 members comprised CEOs of some multi national companies from northern India, including the CEOs of MacDonald’s, Moser Baer etc under the banner of the Confederation of Indian Industries (JK chapter).
The visit, according to a spokesman of the Kanwal Group, was paid to assess the overall functioning of the Group to get an idea how the industries sector in Kashmir has flourished even under the conditions of strife and unrest in the past two decades.
A presentation about the history, setup and current status of the Kanwal was made. It was explained to the delegation that the success of the Kanwal Group of Companies had become possible in the light of upholding the values of offering genuine quality, pure and hygienic products to the people as also the consistent support of the people of Kashmir who have been by the side of the Group and helped it survive and grow.
“Our people have always trusted us and always preferred to buy their local produce and that is how we at Kanwal have been able to beat multinational companies in the spices sector in Kashmir,” the official spokesperson of the Group informed the delegation.
The visiting delegates expressed great satisfaction on knowing that the Group had put up a brave face in the harshest of times and had upheld its cherished values of quality and purity.
The delegates later visited the various manufacturing units of Kanwal Group and they were delighted to see the state-of-the-art manufacturing units of the Group and they unanimously extended their congratulations to the Director, Sales and Marketing, Kanwal Group for having been able to bring the food industry in Kashmir to a scale at par with national and international norms and standards.
Speaking on the occasion, Faroor Amin, Director Sales and Marketing, Kanwal Group of Companies told the visiting delegates that they were welcome to invest in Kashmir where opportunities are ripe. He said that there was great need for multinational players to step ahead in the health sector and setup a multi specialty hospital in Kashmir which was much needed.
Expressing his ideas on the need to sharing of the knowledge resources, Amin told the delegates, “We would invite technology transfer from your end to the industrial sector in Kashmir which has been reeling under a knowledge crisis as also consultancy in terms of tapping potential resources of Kashmir valley.”
“We have the talent, the manpower and the resources to build a strong economy but we are lacking in terms of an industrial economy and for that we could take lessons from the successful business houses in India and perhaps an exchange workshop could be held to help us out at the level of the Confederation of Indian Industries,” he said.
