After touring the turmeric-rich Nizamabad district in Telangana recently Patanjali’s CEO Acharya Balakrishna has shown keen interest in setting up an ayurvedic products manufacturing unit in the district.
Balakrishna visited the district at the invitation of Nizamabad MP K Kavitha to explore the possibilities.
“We will explore possibilities to establish turmeric-based Ayurveda products manufacturing in Nizamabad district where farmers are cultivating turmeric on a large scale,” CEO, Patanjali Ayurveda products, Acharya Balakrishna said.
