Established in June 2019, Polygrams Green is a family-managed organization that started its operation in July 2021. Polygrams Green primarily works in the dehydration of agricultural and horticultural produce like fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. According to Shreyas Patil, director of Polygrams Green, the objective behind the formation of Polygrams Green is to bring out the best practices in terms of food processing which will add value to the agriculture and horticulture produce.
Dehydration is one of the preservation methods used to increase the product's shelf life. Many dehydration techniques can be used to achieve better shelf life for the product. Patil informs, "We use advanced air-drying technology which dehydrates product at ambient room temperature. As we dehydrate at room temperature and products are not exposed to heat or sunlight/harsh light, we achieve maximum retention of the product's natural color, aroma, and taste. Also, we retain maximum nutrients which normally tend to degrade when products are exposed to heat of light."
USPs of Polygrams Green products are:
It's 100% natural
No added preservatives
No added sugar
Best in the quality raw material used
Feels as fresh as a farm
The company has successfully dehydrated 20+ products in fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices categories, from dehydrating jamun, mango, strawberry, and spinach to powdering ginger, neem, and spinach, etc. Polygrams Green has also launched a brand called Fruttons. All the products of Polygrams Green are sold under this brand.
Quality and innovation
As it is said, need is the mother of invention. Today's need is to get everyone the best quality, chemical-free food. Patil highlights, "We have already started with the advanced technology of dehydration where we can achieve better shelf life without any added preservative or sugar. Also, we able to retain maximum nutritional characteristics of the products."

Latest trends in the F&B industry
The F&B industry has seen many disruptions in minimal span of time. It's a very fast-changing and adapting industry. There are many trending concepts regarding F&B.
