Supply Chain Initiatives

To ensure the wellbeing of our raw material suppliers, we organise awareness programmes on the health issues like HIV/AIDS prevention and the ill effects of substance abuse / TB program. The awareness sessions are conducted physically / virtually every quarter on a regular basis with the Apollo partners to reach-out to the stakeholders and spread awareness on the subject through these programs

 

Empowering Women Self Help Groups

As part of our Women Empowerment Programme, which is targeted towards providing livelihood skills to underprivileged women in and around the company’s manufacturing facilities, we have set up a Rubber Sheet Making Unit, for the rubber tapper’s wives at Vellavoor Panchayat in Kottayam, Kerala, India

The unit is being run by a group of women, who have been trained by us in association with Rubber Board of India, on rubber tapping, sheet making, sheet smoking and general entrepreneurial skills. They have also been connected  to the rubber dealers to directly market their produce from this unit.
