As a socially conscious corporate, Mahesh Agro Food Industries has contributed significantly towards community development in and around its operational area since inception. Our approach to social development is to ensure growth, focusing especially on the most underprivileged sections of the society. With this in mind, it has attempted to bring old, backward villages into the mainstream, providing the communities with education, health, self-employment, the skills and strengths to make the most of the opportunities offered by modern India.
The ensuing social development activities have led to the promotion of higher education, health awareness, self-employment and environment, construction of schools, and socially benefiting thousands of people living in the area.
