We employee more than 150 permanent and 400 temporary skilled and non-skilled labor and a staff of 20-25 professionals who are highly proficient and qualified. Most of the pure herbs (spice herbs, medicinal herbs, cosmetic herbs) in our herbs list are wild crafted from all over India, while few are cultivated by own using advance techniques of farming. We have 1000 metric tones of closed storage space to avoid the products from any kind of unusual atmospheric conditions.
Around 200 metric tone's of open shades in the close proximity of the productive field that assist in timely storing of the product after harvesting. These provide the facility of shade drying of 5000 kilograms of product per day to prevent (or inhibit) microorganisms and hence preserve the food and to reduce the weight and bulk of food for cheaper transport and storage.
The drying can be done in the sunlight or in shade. The shade drying takes longer but is supposed to be a very efficient method of drying because it does seem to preserve more of the herb's aroma, nutritional content and freshness that determine the quality of Herbs. They need to be stored away from direct sunlight or heat as these rob the herbs of their potency. When the herb is dried (whether root, leaves, stem or flower) they should be placed into a dry container.
The amount of time that they need to dry will vary according to the plant and the conditions. At Mother Herbs we do shade drying in a manner that there is no infestation or no direct sunlight. This insures that all essential ingredients are retained in the products. In spite of having very large area of storage we are able to maintain necessary hygienic conditions and avoid the infestation of herbs from any harmful microorganisms.
Our basic infrastructure comprises of the following units and machinery.
» Grading Unit - Quality grading of natural produce not only facilitates its marketing but also helps sellers and buyers to choose a particular commodity. We take special measures to ensure that in a given lot the produce is of a uniform quality and specification according to set standards. By this way we ensure that the right price is set for different qualities. It proves to be very beneficial for us at the time of sale.
» Blending Unit - used for size reduction and mixing the plant material until the material is of the finest quality and gets properly mixed. Provides excellent mixing consistency for powders, granules and some slurry. Our blending range is provided with reverse spiral, double ribbon agitator - 6 or 8 ribbons that delivers uniform, high capacity blended product. This ensures the superior quality product in the market.
» Pulverizer – used for maintaining the proper size of the product by breaking up the lumps and eliminating the unusual size of the product. Our pulverized range consists of beaters that are harder and fully mechanized. Pulveriser grinds almost all-herbal products, fruits, herb roots, leaves, bark of tree and is found to be suitable for both wet pulpy and dry crushing
» Siever - It is used for size classification of materials that have been subjected to other means of size reduction. By this way we do the separation of a mixture of various-sized particles, either dry or suspended in a liquid, into two or more portions, by passing through screens of specified mesh sizes. Sieving ensures that the product is of uniform size and removes the unwanted material from the final product.
