Horlicks supply chain raw materials-working with suppliers
About 93% of the water used across our Horlicks India value chain goes in producing raw materials. Much of this is from agricultural produce such as milk, wheat & barley.
We at Cx India partnered with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a sustainable development NGO in India, to assess how we can help reduce water impact in the rural Indian communities that supply us with wheat, barley and milk used to manufacture Horlicks.
We piloted the approach with few major direct aforesaid raw material suppliers along with their suppliers at a rural community level. We have identified projects to address water conservation, rainwater harvesting, waste water treatment, groundwater recharge and rehabilitation of water bodies, and are investigating options to implement this research at one location as pilot.
