OUR HEROES: THE MURMU HONEY COLLECTORS

Read somewhere recently:
“Big corporates make products and a product makes a startup”.
However, as a startup we believe in one more factor…the factor which is as important as the product itself: THE PEOPLE
By people we don’t mean only the workforce which works in the office cubicles but anyone associated in the whole supply chain. 
In our context our most important assets are the ''Murmus''. Since the time immemorial, Murmu tribes have been collecting honey from the forests of India. They are the unsung heroes of the forest. We consider ourselves lucky to have a middleman free contact with them.

It won't be wrong to say that the Murmu Adivasis are entirely responsible to bring THE BEST INDIA COMPANY into fruition, thereby helping us launch Eastern Himalayan Forest Honey. Honey which is as pure, raw, unpasteurised, unheated gold. Today we can happily say that we are working with more than 40 Murmu adivasis and the numbers will cross 400 mark in the next few months.

SADHAN MURMU
An allrounder of the team Sadhan can do anything, however he considers himself as the expert smoke maker. The team uses forest plants and paddy straws to make smoke...that's the only way to safely remove the bees from the hive.

Most of the time the grass root level workforce always remains in oblivion. On the contrary, in THE BEST INDIA COMPANY we consider them as our equal partners. We would love to directly connect them to the TBIC honey lovers.

Who knows one day, on a trip to any national park, you might meet a Murmu...
