Apart from the first expo held in Lisbon in 2008, IFFCO also participated and co-hosted ICA Expo 2010 Bangalore, India on a large scale. “It was indeed a moment of pride for IFFCO to co-host such a significant international co-operative event where cooperatives from almost all sectors of the economy showcased their products and services. We are sure the forthcoming ICA Expo 2012 will further enhance significant cooperation among various cooperatives and provide an excellent platform for global cooperatives to expand their business worldwide”, explains Dr. Gopal Saxena, IFFCO Director of Cooperative Development.
IFFCO has spearheaded the Indian co-operative moment for 4 decades. By wielding the advantages of science, technology, and agriculture-centric diversification, the endeavour had fructified into sustained co-operation among farmers through the length and breadth of India ensuring an everlasting smile on the faces of Indian farmers and prosperity to proud nation.
The IFFCO effect endows better fertilizers, better harvests and better lifestyles by expanding the corporate spectrum auguring diverse prospects and thus narrowing the gap between technology and human effort to achieve the growth plan delineated in vision.
