 fruits and vegetables were undertaken in the year 1992. The
 partners in H C International are Mr Chetan V Motiani, Ms Namita
 A Motiani, Mr Prem L Rohra and Mr Naresh K Rohra. In the same
 year many importers from the European markets came to India for
 procurement of fresh fruits like grapes and mangoes. Discussions
 with them revealed that grapes and mangoes could be transported
 by sea from India to Europe provided a certain post harvest
 treatment was undertaken.

 to put up post harvest treatment facility. A new company

 procured at Village :Jaulke. Tal.Dindori. Dist. Nasik.
 Maharashtra and within six months a Pre-Cooling unit and Cold
 Storage facility with an installed capacity to handle 8 tonnes
 of fresh fruits per day was established. The Company started its
 commercial operations on 17th March, 1993. The first year of
 operations for all practical purposes was however 1993-94. The
 principal fruits dealt with in the first year were grapes and
 mangoes. Trial exports of Pomegranates and Apples were also made

 capital outlay of Rs. 150 lacs which included the cost of land,
 building, precooling and cold storage equipments, except margin
 for working capital refrigerated vans and other supporting
 plants and machinery etc. The project was appraised and part
 financed by ICICI by way of term loan of Rs.75 lacs, extended
 under the Agricultural Commercialisation And Enterprise (ACE)
 Programme of USAID.
 6. In the first year of its operations, FFL has carved out a
 distinct place in the exports of precooled fresh fruits to
 countries like U.K., Netherlands. U. A. E., Saudi Arabia,
 Kuwait. Hongkong and Sri Lanka. The stringent quality control
