The Apricot Growers′ Enterprise is an initiative that is entirely led by local residents. Aarohi’s initiative with apricot growers started in the year 1992 in the event of a massive hailstorm that destroyed over half the fruit crop. As apricots are highly perishable a fair amount of fruit never reaches the market. The nut however remains intact if dried and stored carefully.

The initiative gave value to that portion the fruit regarded as waste and created a vibrant and profitable enterprise for the farmers. Apricot kernels are the main raw material that is used. These kernels are the source of precious oil of apricot and scrubs, generating a steady income and providing a sustainable means of livelihood to the local residents.
