From Humble Beginnings to Shark Tank Success

How Stratefix Helped GrowiT India Revolutionize Agriculture

Imagine a world where farmers, the backbone of India, have access to cutting-edge tools that boost their yields and empower their practices. But their journey, like the perfect crop, needed careful nurturing. Enter Stratefix, the expert gardener who helped them blossom. 

From a family-run business to a national brand empowering farmers, GrowiT India’s journey is an inspiring tale of innovation and strategic growth. Founded in 2020, GrowiT, the agricultural arm of Alpha Plastomers Pvt. Ltd., set out to transform Indian agriculture engaged in manufacturing and supplying high-quality, sustainable products like mulching films, crop covers and shade nets.  

But venturing into the direct-to-consumer (D2C) market felt like uncharted territory. 

The Challenge: Bridging the Gap from B2B to D2C

Despite a successful B2B track record spanning over 50 years, GrowiT faced unique challenges when venturing into the Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) market. Selling directly to farmers was trickier than expected with Manufacturing capacity planning.  

Here’s what Saurabh Agrawal, Co-founder of Alpha Plastomers Pvt. Ltd. and GrowiT India, had to say:  

“We were unsure how to approach the D2C market. Challenges like business model viability, lack of a dedicated ground team and limited technology integration at the field level hindered our initial growth.”
