Mr. P. Vijayraghavan, Director & C.E.O. of Laurencedale Estate & Farms (P) Ltd. at Ooty has been a connoisseur of hygienic horticultural production, handling and distribution since his childhood. His love for carrots, synergised with the most suitable agro climatic conditions of the Nilgiri Hills, made him the leader of carrot business in India.

Having surveyed carrot production and distribution the world over and having installed smaller machines for washing, grading, polishing and packing from various suppliers, Mr. Vijayraghavan, this August, 2013, ultimately settled with Allround (India) Vegetable Processing Machines Pvt. Ltd. to supply and install him the complete Carrot Processing Line with washing, inspection, grading, polishing and bagging with a capacity of 10-15 tons an hour to be started in Ooty this winter. Convinced with the selection of the type of machines, the layout, the technology and the warranty of service in India over a series of discussions and meetings with the technical and commercial teams of Allround India and Allround Holland, Mr Vijayaraghavan now finds himself in safe hands to have this carrot processing line from Allround.
