Gherkins are referred as a small cucumber, which are edible fruits and are preferred in the pickled form. Although, many vegetables including beetroot, cabbage, and pepper are sold in the pickle form, gherkins are the leading exporter of the world Gherkins are available in different seasonings and sizes and reflect the variations in taste of European consumers. The German "Gurken", for example, are larger in size than the "cornichons" available in France and are also marketed in slices. The seasoning is "sw eet-and-sour", whereas the gherkins sold in France usually do not contain any added sugar and are sold whole. There are six different sizes of gherkins available on the market, with the smaller sizes mostly available through retail outlets and the larger used in the food industry and the catering sector. Gherkin is a cucurbitaceous vegetable crop of 90 days duration, which is harvested raw for pickling. The product has negligible domestic market and the cultivation is exclusively for exports. The preserved pickled fruits are used in the preparations like sandwiches, pizzas, etc. Major destinations for its exports are Europe, USA, Russia, Australia and few other countries. The crop was introduced to India only in 1990 as the crop can be cultivated round he year unlike t other major producing countries like Mexico, Hungary and Madagascar, where it can be cultivated only for three months in a year. Further, Gherkin Is a labourintensive crop, and, hence, the cost of cultivation is lower in labour surplus country like India compared to Europe and America. engaged in marketing of gherkin abroad prefer to procure the produce from India. The Export-Oriented Units (EOUs) engaged in Gherkin exports procure the produce from farmers, who grow the crop under contract f rming arrangements. After grading, sorting and a washing the fruits, it is preserved in appropriate media like Acetic Acid, vinegar or Brine Solution for bulk exports in large jars and bottled as pickles by the importing country or directly processed as pickles and bottled in Indi itself for exports. The media used for preservation and other ingredients in the bottled pickles depend on the customer's choice and at times are provided by the importers from abroad. The crop is popularly known as 'pickling cucum or 'small ber' cucumber' among the farmers. There are 22 EOUs under Gherkin in Karnataka, mostly located in Bangalore except two in Hassan and one at Chintamani in Kolar district. Most of the units, except two, had been exporting Gherkin in bulk until recently. It was reported by the respondent units that with the



increase in wages in the European Union member countries, the importers prefer bottled exports and, therefore, now more and more units are establishing bottling units for exports. The total capital invested by the Gherkin units in the State work out to Rs.126.64 crore with an installed capacity of 1.78 lakh tonnes per annum. Approximately, 41,600 farmers are cultivating Gherkin in the State in an area of 39,178 acres. The volume of exports during 2009-10 was 70,239 tonnes in bulk and 2,11,40,994 jars which would work out to another 6342 For this reason, industries tonnes EOU-wise export of gherkin and year-wise export of gherkin are presented in Annexures I and II, respectively. The status of gherkin industry in Karnataka is Indicated In Table 1.1.

REITZEL INDIA Global demand for Gherkin is estimated at around 20 lakh tonnes and the supply from India works out hardly to 4 per cent of the demand. The problem with the Indian Gherkin Industry is the low yield. While well managed gardens are getting a yield of 7 to 8 tonnes per acre, overall average is reported to be only 2.5 tonnes per acre as against a potential yield of 20 tonnes per acre. The focus of the gherkin industry is, therefore, on increasing the yield by past and disease management and improving the irrigation facilities. If the average yield is enhanced to 5 tonnes per acre, the production from the existing area could reach nearly 2 lakh tonnes,supplying around 15 per cent of the global demand. The Government of India (GoI) in 2001-02 started establishing Agri-Export Zones (AEZs) in various States with the objective of increasing India's share in Global Agri Trade. AEZs are meant to facilitate the development and sourcing of raw material (agri produce) in a contiguous area for exports through its processing/packaging. In Karnataka, 4 crops have been identified for promotion under the AEZs, Viz. Gherkin, Rose Onion, Flowers and Vanilla. Among these crops, contract farming is prevalent and established in respect of ExportOriented Units (EOUs) in Gherkin-processing. EOUs have two types of contract arrangements. In the first model, a team of field workers visit the villages and explain to the farmers about Gherkin for the cultivation of which various inputs and services are offered by the EOU. They also explain the responsibilities of the farmers. Once the farmer consents to grow Gherkin on behalf of the EOU, a bipartite agreement is entered into between the company and the farmers. The EOUs provide identity card and a pass book to the farmer to record the supply of inputs, application of pesticides and fertilisers, quantities of produce procured, etc."Facilitators" are entrusted to procure bulk of gherkin instead of contracting with the individual farmers. The "Facilitators" agree to supply a definite quantum of Gherkin in a season and take the responsibility of supplying inputs like seeds, pesticides and fertilisers to the farmers. They act as an intermediary between the EOU and farmers. With a view to encouraging banks in financing the EOUs in AEZs, a very flexible approach is adopted and investment credit is ma available for processors / exporters. In order de to give a fillip to the implementation of the programme, NABARD has taken initiatives like fixation of scale of finance for crops covered under AEZ, preparation of Banking Plans, 100 per cent refinance on bank loans, bringing out booklets for the use of all the agencies, organising workshops at the State and District Levels to review the progress, etc. Why Switzerland? Because the first foreign company to deal with importing gherkins for pickling from Karnat ka a


REITZEL INDIA (and also India) was Reitzel, a food products multinational with several global branches. Reitzel first bought raw produce from Global Green of the Thapar group, but now also have their own processing factory. There are over 40 Indian and foreign exporing firms in Karnataka, their main t markets being the US, Russia, France, Germany, Australia, Spain and South Korea. Export of value-added gherkins (baby cucumber) which is a complete breakfast dish in the USA, Europe and Australia, from India has provide a silver lining to the dark clouds d looming on the Indian agriculture scenario with the lifting of quantitative restrictions by the World Trade Organization. Gherkin exports, which had crossed Rs 140 crore, had already made 12 farmers in the country µlakhpatis¶ in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. India is becoming a large sourcing centre for gherkins for Amora maille of the Unilever Best Foods, Europe Groups. From a mere 1,000 tonnes three years ago, the company¶s gherkin imports increased to 5,000 tonnes las year and t controlled 50 per cent of the market of gherkins and food dressings. City -based Global Green Company, part of the $ 2 billion Thapar group, is the single largest exporter to Amora. Gherkin exports last financial year touched 10,000 tonnes accoun ting for 20 per cent of the total Indian exports. Having recently bagged an order for supply of one million jars of gherkins to a major German food retailer, Global Green disbursed Rs 3.25 crore to 5,000 small and marginal growers in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka during the first three months of this calendar year.Rising incomes and urbanization, an expanding domestic consumer base concerned about food quality and safety, and rapidly growing agricultural exports have been important drivers for the increased attention to food safety in India. But the development of effective food safety systems is hampered by a number of factors, including: restrictive government marketing regulations, weak policy and regulatory framework for food safety, inadequate enforcemen of existing standards, a t multiplicity of government agencies involved, weak market infrastructure and agricultural support services. The small farm structure further limits farmer capacity to meet increasing domestic and export food safety and SPS requirements. Addressing food safety concerns in India will require adoption of appropriate legislation, strengthening capacity to enforce rules, promoting adoption of good agricultural, manufacturing and hygiene practices, greater collective action, and some t rgeted investments. Implementing a these actions will require joint efforts by the government and the private sector.




BACKGROUND AND INCEPTION OF THE COMPANY Reitzel India Private Limited a multinational company known for its specialization in pickled vegetables is now embarking on a global pathway to enter Russia and USA. The

companies will exports gherkin pickles. The factory, which is HACCP, BRC & IFS, certified and is situated in KIADB industrial area in Kunigal in Tumkur and is spread over 11acres. The Switzerland-based Reitzel was started in 1909 and set up independent operations in France, Turkey and India (2005). The company's Hugo Reitzel brand is fo the hotel and catering r sector. It also specializes in dressing based on mustards and vinegars. It also has a range of ketchup and mayonnaise, salad dressings and fresh sauces (hot & cold). All products are widely distributed across retail outlets globall and it undertakes orders y for private labels. Karnataka was opted for its manufacturing plant going by the potential of gherkins that are popular globally. Since 1992 -93, gherkins were dispatched in semi-processed conditions to its unit in Switzerland. In order to capitalize on the local condition, the MNC decided to set-base in Karnataka where gherkins could be packaged for export directly from here. The capacity of the unit is 30,000 tones, but they now prod around 15,000 tones. By 2013 uce they will go full steam. More than 5,000 farmers are associated with Reitzel under the contract farming initiative. Gherkins are cultivated in Tumkur, Hassan, Bidar, Rannebennur, Davangere and some parts of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. In order to maintain quality and guarantee the safety of its supplies the company has introduced a rigorous follow-up and verification policy for its raw material - from selection of seeds to production areas to packaging in the factories they ensure good agricultural pracices is t maintained. An investment of 20-25 crore was pumped in for the Kunigal facility, which is a cent percent, export oriented unit having four lines. In India, Reitzel is ranked third after Global Greens and Inter Garden. However, it holds a leadership status in Switzerland and France. There is a huge competition in the gherkins sector but quality is the lone drivingFactor. The shelf life of the gherkins in jar is three years, while for can is two years and in bulk is 18 months.While export is their only focus, the company is also keen on tapping domestic consumption and by 2013.Besides gherkins; the company also offers pickled chillies, cherry tomatoes and onions.
