In essence, BharatRohan's collaboration with ESCAP is poised to pave the way for inclusive business in Indian agriculture, setting a blueprint for the future. Through this initiative, BharatRohan is set to strengthen its position in advancing business opportunities and solidifying its presence in export markets, marking a significant step toward a more sustainable and inclusive agricultural landscape in India.
