As part of its efforts towards social responsibility initiatives, the Kochi campus of UST Global at Infopark has set up a stall to create awareness among the employees and general public about the benefits of organic farming.

The organic farming programme is aimed at bringing to fore the advantages of choosing organic food in an era where food materials increasingly come with pesticide contamination.   Among the many organic farming initiatives, the ‘terrace farming’ method,  which all apartment dwellers can try out in the minimum available space such as house balconies, has garnered much attention.

Besides, the awareness initiative also witnessed UST Global employees distributing seeds of beans and similar vegetables, which can be cultivated in a short period and with little space. The stall also exhibited fruit varieties, which contain phyto-nutrients, and saplings.

Elaborating on the purpose behind the initiative, Sunil Balakrishnan, Global Head, Centre Operations, said that UST Global has always taken up and implemented a variety of social responsibility initiatives.

Besides, such programmes prove helpful  in refreshing the minds of UST Global’s employees, he said.
