Patanjali, a fast-growing organization crossing US$1bn of sales in five years of time span and declaring a target of doubling this figure in the financial year 2016-2017 (to reach US$1,500m). The prime focus of Patanjali is the health food segment based on herbal and Ayurveda science through the use of organically grown agricultural produce by integrating the associated value chains while radically benefitting all the stakeholders in a two-way process as suppliers as well as buyers/consumers.

3. TAPF commonly known as The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a non-profit organization in India that runs school lunch program across India. The organization was established in 2000. TAPF started out as a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) headquartered in Bangalore in June 2000. It provided free mid-day meals to 1,500 students in government schools in the city during the initial year. By 2015, TAPF kitchens were operating at 24 locations (across ten states) and were serving over 1.4 million children. These kitchens were both centralized and decentralized and served a set of schools in the area in which they were located. Such efficiency didn’t happen overnight, according to Vinay Kumar, head of operations at Akshaya Patra. He and his colleagues standardized processes across multiple facilities. They also implemented systems to share innovations across the entire chain of kitchens. “Each of our decisions is data-driven. Anything we implement should be measured by data, replicable in another place, and standardized,” says Kumar. Kitchen workers know exactly how long it takes to cook each meal. They know how much kitchen capacity is required to make that meal. TAPF is on a mission of feeding five million children by 2020. (Source: https://ssir.org/articles/entry/case_study_akshaya_patra) a.
