In the last two years, they have opened over 300 outlets across the country. We hope to add another 200 stores in the next two-three years and penetrate further in the South Indian markets. However, this year they will focus on increasing efficiency, improving their procurement mechanism, including logistics, and aggressively promote their agri-products. Haryali Kisaan Bazaar is present in eight states such as Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. It plans to tap the Southern markets and will enter states like Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
