Nearly $7 billion worth of food is wasted every year in India alone. By introducing innovations at the intersection of cleantech and internet of things (IoT), Ecozen Solutions is disrupting the way perishables are handled across the value chain. They have built an intelligent and completely automated after-sales service solution, focused on agricultural markets. Currently, Ecozen has two products: Ecofrost and Ecotron. Ecofrost is a portable solar-powered cold room based on thermal energy storage, which can maintain low temperatures without any backup power. With the ability to store their crops using Ecofrost, smallholder farmers have the ability to increase their profits by 40 percent over time. Ecofrost is a market leader in solar cold room space accounting for more than 50% of installed units. Ecotron is a smart controller for irrigation pumps that complements Ecozen's offerings in the solar/agri-solutions space in which they have a 20% market share in the Indian market. Both products are integrated with the internet, providing Ecozen with extensive data about product usage and performance. Using this data, they are building a perishables-friendly marketplace with powerful proprietary algorithms to improve product performance, serviceability, and reliability. The company achieved social as well as environmental impact across eight different countries through helping +70,000 farmers, generating 948 Mn kwh clean energy, abating 948,000 tonnes of CO2 emission, and avoiding 18,000 MT food wastage.

Currently Operating in 13 Regions
