Ihsedu Agrochem Private Limited was founded in 2000 and was acquired as a wholly owned subsidiary of Jayant Agro-Organics Limited in 2002. A crushing unit from Gujarat Agro Industries Corporation, located in Palanpur Gujarat was acquired for castor oil production. The plant was later fully modernised with state-of-the-art technology.
The plant is located in Banaskantha - which is one of the largest castor growing districts in Gujarat - which alone accounts for 75% of India's castor seed production. The plant is well linked as it is situated on the state highway and is in close proximity to the Kandla Port from where our bulk oil exports take place.
In 2013, Jayant Agro and Arkema - a global chemical company, entered into a joint venture agreement. The joint venture will be focused on manufacturing various industrial and specialty grades of castor oil. Through this joint venture with Arkema, which is the largest consumer of castor oil, Jayant Agro and its subsidiary Ihsedu Agrochem will further consolidate their position in the castor oil market as a leading, consistent and reliable supplier to the world market.
