GreenTokri was established in 2001 by Dr. Marc Cremer and his wife Benedikte in partnership with Mr. Zaheer J. Vakil and Mr. Mohiuddin Mulla.
It all started as Marc’s hobby and his desire to have fresh lettuce in India. Marc is a Pune-born Indo-German who has been living here with his family for the past fourteen years. He has a PhD from Berlin’s Humboldt University in Agricultural Engineering. After working in the IT sector for several years, Marc has now returned to his passion and joy – farming in India.
With his knowledge of Agricultural Engineering and IT background, Marc has introduced the latest technologies into farming. On the farm you’ll see an intricate computer-operated drip-irrigation system providing not just hydration but also fertiliser to the plants based on carefully monitored chemical factors. He has made it possible to grow tasty, high quality lettuce in harsh Indian terrain using hydroponics.
Today, GreenTokri’s home delivery distribution network has grown to cover most areas of Pune and even Mumbai. You can find GreenTokri lettuces and herbs, salad dressings, pickled jalapenos and gherkins, pasta sauce, basil pesto and all other delicacies like mayonnaises in many retail shops and restaurants in Pune and also in Mumbai.
